Shark finner Tsu Yu Jen Fined by Court
Check the latest Tico Times online. The sharkfin smuggler received no jail time but will have to pay $36,000 in fines plus the $64,000 he made in profit from the fins. I would have preferred to set a precident of 2 years in jail, but at least it's a baby step. I hope this money goes to the protection of the Cocos Island protected park which has the largest shark population in the world and is still being illegally fished. Express your opinion to Chinchilla.
