US Fishermen that land Sharks in some states will be penalized by ignorant politicians

Shark finning, a deplorable practice, is becoming the rally cry for some ignorant politicians to remove the ability of US fishermen to fill a niche market that is being dismantled simply because they cannot tell the difference between legal and illegal fishery issues. These state enacted bans are another assault on fishermen that play by the rules. Are they to just throw the legally landed shark products into the landfill, wasting condemned portions?
