A bill in the Oregon House is designed to reduce the market for shark fins. Shark fins are considered a delicacy in some cultures but animal activists say the way fins are collected is inhumane. Sharon Harmon with the Oregon Humane Society says her organization does not disagree with fishing or hunting. The bill would make it illegal to sell or trade shark fins in Oregon. A $120 fine is being considered, but some lawmakers wonder if the fee is enough to slow the practice of shark finning which, reportedly, can be quite lucrative. Opponents are concerned the ban could cause complications for researchers and fishers who accidentally catch shark. Another hearing will be held.
