New Market for Camel Milk and Shark Fish Conservation

Animal Genetic Resources, the Camel, Food Security and the Climate Change

In Japan health conscious people use Shark fins for natural and good health as (they think) nanobodies (NB) found in Shark fins are health promising and aphrodisiac. This is the reason that Shark prices are very high in Japan. Recent studies revealed that such NB are found in camel milk are more richer than the Shark fins.

A famous chef name Chinn (protecting Shark) even claimed “Shark’s fin soup has no taste! You take fins off a shark and you don’t really get anything. There’s no value except what you’re paying for.” Camel milk can be a good source of NB and reasonable replacement to the Shark fins. Hence, we can say that Japan and Korean Peninsula can be the new and emerging market for camel milk. Just a brain storming.
