Ban the Import of Shark Products in the State of Florida

2 weekends ago Duncan and I visited a few tourist shops on South Beach. We went in to see what shark products they were selling and were disgusted to find jaws and fetuses in jars. There is no way these items should represent the essence that is Florida and there is no way their sale and distribution should be legal. I traced the products back to a company called Holiday Souvenirs based in Fort Lauderdale. I called them and was told the items were " by products of overseas fishing," before I was hung up on.

I have started a petition to get the import of such products banned in the state of Florida. Also here is the contact information for Holiday Souvenirs. Please call and email to voice your opinion about this disgusting market that has no place in Florida. It is a global issue, but we must act locally. The goal is 10,000 signatures in order to get the attention of Florida Senators.
