It's official: Port Moody has banned the sale, trade and distribution of shark fins in the city.

Council unanimously passed the bylaw amendments at Tuesday's meeting, making it the second city in B.C. to ban shark fins.

Last week, Coquitlam passed a motion to ban shark fins and staff there are now looking into how to implement it.

After obtaining a legal opinion on the matter, PoMo pursued the ban as part of its business licensing bylaw. Businesses found possessing or distributing shark fins will be subject to a $500 fine.
