Stop the shark fin trade!

The Common Good Foundation (CGF) has joined Shark Allies to stop the shark fin trade in Florida. CGF submitted a report on criminal activities that do and may occur as a result of the shark fin trade in Florida.

Passage of the Florida Bill would also prevent the state’s complicity in the criminal activity that surrounds the fin trade.
