Hawaii Enforces Shark Fin Ban

From MSNBC: While California has been battling over a proposed shark fin ban, today Hawaii started to enforce its own ban that was passed into law earlier this year. “Restaurants serving fins will have until next July to run through their inventory. After that, those caught with fin will have to pay a fine between $5,000 to $15,000 for a first offense. A third offense would result in a fine between $35,000 to $50,000 and up to a year in prison.” Starting now, Hawaii means business.
