Default Re: Where can i sell shark fins

I think shark finning (cutting the fins without harvesting the entire carcass) is illegal, but selling fins is apparently allowed. I don't know the specifics of selling- just that if shark fins are on your boat, there had better be a shark carcass.

Supposedly, shark fins have a wholesale value of $100 per lb wet, and $200 dried. By the time the fins reach parts of Asia, they're worth considerably more. Apparently, one bowl of shark fin soup might cost $100 in Tokyo.

I wonder if you need a commercial license to sell the fins legally...
