Following text goes to the management of restaurants in the German-speaking countries have shark fin soup on offer:

Ladies and gentlemen of the Board, with surprise, we found that your restaurant on its menu still shark-fin soup and / or offer other shark products - a specialty that includes causes immense animal and wildlife conservation issues and long outlawed: We wish to caution that your restaurant contributes to many shark species could become extinct soon. Conservative estimates put the annual 100 million sharks killed. As a rule, sharks mature late and have a low fertility rate. So a female basking shark reaches only 15 to 20 years from the maturity and brings it every two to three years, only four to six cubs. When the robbers at the top of the food chain, this is normal and designed to hold the stock for a long time. But with such a species reproductive strategy are very vulnerable when they are exploited because after a big slump their number can not recover quickly. Especially the consumption of shark fins is to be condemned. The fins are usually the most valuable part of a shark. Shark meat is considered inferior and difficult to store. Therefore already be cut off at sea, the fins and the rest of the body is often thrown back alive. The helpless animals die a long painful death. Many species of sharks are apex predators as the health police the seas and so keep this intact ecosystem. They are important for the eradication of weakened or diseased prey and thus have an important role in regulating and strengthening the prey population. If such apex predators is removed, has unpredictable effects on the ecosystem. We urge you, therefore, to ban shark fins and any other shark products from your menu. With local organic products as an alternative to actively contribute to a better environment and the health of your customers ! , Sincerely

Thanks for this. The more individual cities, countries and restaurants that are targeted the more chance of success in ending this obscene menu choice.
