  1. This story is most apt for the city of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, as it holds the record of being the hiehgst consumer of shark flesh in the world.Victorians, in common with most Anglo- Saxons the world over, have a preference for white fleshed, boneless, bland fish meat, and shark fills these criteria perfectly.The retail cooked fish and chip shops are the hiehgst users of this fish as shark (called flake) constitutes 70% of their sales.In their favour at least the whole body of fish is consumed and not just the fins.
