Jason Xie, Sacramento resident, pleaded guilty yesterday (June 19) to bringing endangered Totoaba fish swim bladders into the United States. The fish are endemic only to the Gulf of California. The swim bladders are highly prized in Asian markets for things such as soup. Xie agreed to forfeit the swim bladders and also a $350,000 residence he purchased in Seattle with proceeds from his marketing of the fish.
