A group of Irvine sixth-graders
meets with state Assemblyman Don Wagner, R-Irvine, at his office to discuss AB 376, the state bill that would ban the sales of shark fins in California. The kids became strong advocates for the bill after watching the documentary film “Sharkwater,” an expose on the shark-hunting industry.

In February legislation was introduced (it hasn’t been passed yet) aimed to ban shark fins in the state of California.  The bill is called AB 376.  It will make the possession or sales of shark fins illegal in the state.  Assemblyman Fong and Assemblyman Huffman introduced the proposed legislation and launched it on Valentine’s Day no less! (Way to share the love of sharks!)  Our goal is to see that this legislation becomes law.
