Illinois bans shark fin sales to aid global effort
CHICAGO – With the Shedd Aquarium’s Wild Reef as a backdrop, Gov. Pat Quinn signed a law banning the sale, trade or distribution of shark fins.
Illinois becomes the first inland state to adopt such a ban. Lawmakers who pushed for it have said Chicago’s Chinatown has been a hub for the sale of shark fins in the Midwest.
Quinn said the ban will aid global efforts to prevent the collapse of shark populations.
