In mid-March, Florida House legislators passed a Senate bill banning the importation and exportation of shark fins. The shark fin bill formally known as “SB 680” will have an amendment that permits the sale of shark fins for commercial fisherman holding a federal shark fishing permit on January 1, 2020.
