California bans sale, trade and possession of shark's fins

California's Governor Jerry Brown has signed a Bill banning the sale, trade and possession of shark's fins to protect the world's dwindling shark population. "The practice of cutting the fins of living sharks and dumping them back in the ocean is not only cruel, but it harms the health of our oceans," Mr Brown wrote in a statement. California joined Hawaii, Washington, Oregon and Guam in the ban. The California market for shark's fin soup is the largest outside Asia and critics of shark finning estimate that fishermen kill 73 million sharks each year for their fins. The ban will take effect in January. AP
