Dear Coral-listersThis is a correction regarding Seagate products selling shark fin cartilage in eBay. I called the California-based company and they confirmed their shark fin products come from a sustainable blue shark fishery off California.First Fishery Development Services, Inc, the manufacturer of Seagate products, have been active in stopping the illegal practice of shark finning in Mexico over 20 years ago.
