California Bill Introduced to Prohibit Sale of Shark Fins

Shark fin soup has been a cultural tradition in some places around the world, such as in China. However, a bill recently introduced in the California Legislature would ban the sale and possession of shark fins, including the serving of shark’s fin soup. This bill seeks to reduce shark finning, a brutal, bloody practice of the global trade in which the fins are typically hacked off a live shark, leaving it to die slowly as it sinks to the bottom of the sea. This is the fate that about 73 million sharks face every year.

California has stepped up to the challenge of reducing the suffering of God's animals and the environmental devastation this causes. Hopefully, more states will follow in order to make this world a better place for future generations.
