Cuomo Signs Shark Fin Ban

If you've always wanted to own a shark fin, you're too late. Governor Cuomo has signed a bill that makes it illegal to have one.  Cuomo says 73 million sharks worldwide are killed each year for their fins.  There are exceptions for the fins of dogfish, a type of shark caught in the Atlantic and mostly exported to England for fish and chips, and for fins used for education.  Four other states have passed similar bans.
