This Nov. 28 photo provided by the United States Attorney’s Office and introduced as evidence in court in Honolulu shows some of the hundreds of shark fins seized from a Japanese fishing boat. U.S. prosecutors in Hawaii accuse the owner and officers of the Japanese fishing boat of helping Indonesian fishermen smuggle nearly 1,000 shark fins. Hamada Suisan Co. Ltd., the Japanese business that owned the vessel, and JF Zengyoren, a Japanese fishing cooperative, were charged Dec. 11 with aiding and abetting the trafficking and smuggling of shark fins.
