Gov. Jerry Brown Signed the CA Shark Fin Bill!

IF SHARKS COULD TALK..THEY'D BE SAYING THANK YOU!

Well today is not only an amazing day because it’s Friday, and I’m going to the Incubus concert tonight at the Hollywood Bowl, but also because Jerry Brown signed the California Shark Fin Ban Bill!

The bill bans the sale and possession of shark fins in California (AB 376)-introduced by Assembly Member Paul Fong. It’s a huge step for the ocean and shark conservation.

Jerry stated:

“The practice of cutting the fins off of living sharks and dumping them back in the ocean is not only cruel, but it harms the health of our oceans,”

“Researchers estimate that some shark populations have declined by more than 90 percent, portending grave threats to our environment and commercial fishing. In the interest of future generations, I have signed this bill.”

Way to go Mr. Brown! Myself and many other ocean advocates are celebrating today!
