Paying Lip service

In Hong Kong’s South China Morning Post (SCMP)a couple of weeks ago, there was an expose on the sale of Humphead Wrasse fish or Napoleon Wrasse, known locally as so mei, in Hong Kong. This fish is one of the world’s most endangered coral reef fish and is a delicacy for affluent Chinese diners. It…
