California’s Shark Fin Ban

California’s Shark Fin Ban (fish & Game Code section 2021) prohibits the sale, offer for sale, trade, or distribution of the detached elasmobranch fins.  The ban applies to the fins and tails of sharks, skates, and rays. 

North Coast Fisheries, LLC recommends that fish buyers avoid cut skate wings, or risk possible enforcement action.
