About the Show

In Gordon Ramsay's Shark Bait, one of the world’s most famous chefs will expose the shocking practices that are threatening the existence of one of the earth’s most amazing creatures and confront the illicit fishermen, traders and diners who are responsible for the shark’s precipitous decline. Gordon’s journey will include tasting a controversial bowl of shark fin soup in London, uncovering a gruesome but commonplace shark massacre in Mozambique, and diving with a school of Great Whites in South Africa. Gordon will visit a high-end Chinese restaurant in London to sample the main source of the shark’s troubles; a bowl of shark-fin soup that’s on the menu for a staggering £40. In Gordon’s pursuit to find out if Shark Fin soup is a dish that gone too far, he’s heading out of the UK to try and see for himself how shark fins are harvested. He’ll visit the East African coast where shark finning has exploded over the last five years. But it’s only when Gordon finally gets his wish to get up close alongside a Great White Shark that he will reach his final conclusion. He knows that once the sharks are gone they’ll be gone for ever. But will he be convinced that Shark Fin Soup should come off the menu?
