Sharkmeat is quite hard to prepare and if not done properly tastes awful. In truth the Chinese government introduced these laws because of the wasteful practice of only taking the fins for "sharks fin soup" while throwing out the carcass. i'm sure the girl would have argued she wasn't wasting the meat but she can ponder her mistake in prison.

The Japanese have thing for sushi made of flipper and Shamu

From what I read it's specifically Great White shark that's illegal because it's considered an endangered species in China. That's why I posted that Jaws poster showing a Great White shark getting ready to eat a girl, and said it's usually the other way around.

It's actually quite uncommon but you have to remember the Chinese have penchant for desiring to eat rare animals. This silly girl thought she was being sophisticated and classy.
