State officials in California concerned about confusion over the shark fin ban are reaching out to educate Chinatown merchants about the new law, reports CBS Local.

They had the chance to quiz state regulators during a meeting in San Francisco’s Chinatown. Many of those state merchants continue to fight the law and have sued in federal court to overturn it.

“It is really ridiculous that right now the fisherman, they have to throw away the shark fins before they take the shark onshore,” said Frank Lee, president of the Organization for Justice and Equality, the group behind the lawsuit.

“That is very wasteful and also it is indeed discrimination,” Lee said.
