In brief: No proof

Although shark fin is claimed in traditional chinese medicine to lower cholesterol & to combat cancer & heart disease - there is currently no scientific proof of this.
There is a health risk in ingesting shark fins. It is a predator fish with of high levels of bmaa (neurotoxin), arsenic & methylmercury.
