New York Bans Shark Fin Trade



An excerpt:

With Governor Andrew Cuomos signature today, New York joinsMarylandandDelawareas the third state on the East Coast to ban the sale, trade, distribution and possession of shark fins throughout the state, and the eighth state in the nation to adopt the ban. Every state that passes similar laws moves our country closer to shutting down the U.S. market for shark fin soup. This newly minted victory is already threatened, however, by proposals by the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) to block these important measures.

Did you also know that our Sabah government had already banned shark fin from all its government functions in 2011:http://myanimalcare.org/2011/11/15/sabah-may-be-the-first-in-asia-to-ban-shark-trade/
