Actress Bo Derek has joined California lawmakers to fight for a bill that would ban selling, trading, or possessing shark fins, which are used in a soup that is a delicacy in many Asian cultures.

In order to get the fins, sharks are caught, then have their fins sliced off before they are thrown back into the ocean where they are left to die.

Bo calls shark-finning "a global environmental crisis" and says that "many stocks may be wiped out."

Thankfully, U.S. law restricts the shark fin trade, however, it has the largest market in California outside of Asia.

Quite startling for an illegal practice.

Keeping our fingers crossed that the bill is passed.
