Why is the protected totoaba fish maw still on sale in Hong Kong dried seafood markets? Picking out an endangered shark fin from a non-endangered shark fin can be tricky.  But in Hong Kong the punishment doesn’t befit the crime when it comes to trading in endangered marine species. And research has shown that some of the same traffickers in endangered wildlife are also trafficking in illegal drugs.  What can we do to get control over the exploitation in our open seas that is driving some marine species to extinction?
