Food Network Ditches Shark Meat

As a result of a petition by outraged viewers, the Food Network will no longer feature shark meat in its programming or recipes.

Last week, the Food Network agreed to discontinue all of its recipes containing shark meat. Jessica Belsky of change.org, a social-change website, launched a campaign earlier this month urging the popular television station to remove all foods and recipes containing shark from its programming and online outlets, and more than 31,000 people expressed their support by signing her petition. On August 15, Susan Stockton, a representative from the Food Network Kitchens, responded by assuring viewers that in the future, the controversial meat would be omitted. According to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, nearly one-third of shark species are threatened with extinction because of habitat destruction and overfishing to meet demand for their meat and fins.
