It was just announced that California Governor Jerry Brown just signed AB 376, the bill prohibiting the possession and sale of shark fins in the State of California, into law. F*#% YES!

I am over the moon about this, as I'm sure are many of you. Kudos to everyone who had a part in making this happen. Let's hope this movement gains momentum around the world.

Great news indeed Gina. Thanks for the update.

Now all those fins in my freezer will go up and up in value!

Now I hope it is actually enforced! And hopefully other states follow the example.

Great work Gina, Kevin & Liz Sullivan, the California chapter of Sharksavers, and the so many other people who took time out of their lives to view the bigger picture.
Thank you!
