China tariffs could erode remaining US shark fin business

Shark fins are available for sale at $480 and $495 a pound in 2011 at a store in Chinatown in San Francisco. A new set of Chinese tariffs on U.S. seafood includes products made from shark fins, and the move could jeopardize what remains of the American fin business. The U.S. has long banned “shark finning,” the practice of removing the fin from a shark and discarding the animal at sea. But it’s still legal to remove and sell the fin of a legally harvested shark after it’s brought to land.
