Battle over shark fin soup heats up in California

"Environmental groups are pushing the California Legislature to ban the sale and possession of shark fins, causing an emotional split among Chinese Americans for whom shark fin soup is a traditional delicacy," the LA Times reports.

The Alhambra Source previously reported on local restaurants uniting to fight the bill, which passed the State Assembly last month, but is running into trouble in the Senate.
