CNN feature on proposed California shark fin ban

CNN’s Eco Solutions recently ran a feature focusing on California’s proposed Shark Protection Act (AB 376). If passed, the law will prohibit the possession, sale, and trade of shark fins in the State of California. While supporters of the bill argue that it will help preserve marine ecosystems by protecting sharks, opponents of the bill argue that it unfairly targets Chinese culture, due to tradition of serving shark fin soup at banquets.

The California Shark Protection Act is expected to go before the State Senate this week.
