SharkFin.jpgStarting next July, shark fins will no longer be available in New York restaurants. In a huge move for people who like the environment, Governor Cuomo signed a bill into law today that will ban all sales of shark fins in the state, with the exception of two less-threatened-by-overfishing species of dogfish to meet demand for shark fin soup, effective July 1, 2014.
