A bill to ban shark fin trade is moving through Oregon Legislature.

BusinessWeek is reporting that Oregon lawmakers are considering a ban on the trade of shark fins, which are often used in shark fin soup. A bill that would ban the trade of shark fins has already been unanimously passed by a House committee. Now, the bill will head to the floor for a vote.

Similar bans on the trade of shark fin are also under consideration in California and Washington. Hawaii has already recently adopted a shark fin ban.
