Thank you so much for this big effort at conservation! Sharks are vital to our oceans and we"ve lost 90% of them already. Actions like this are wonderful and will spread to others. This restaurant chain is now known for its good will. Bright Blessings!

Just an act of remorse or a gimmick for big rushes of New Year biz? Whichever, it is a hopeless sign !!
