A Southern California sushi restaurant and two chefs have been indicted on conspiracy and other charges for allegedly serving illegal and endangered whale meat.
Ginichi Ohira sold protected sei whale meat to The Hump in Santa Monica, which closed its doors last year after prosecutors charged the owner and chef with sales of the protected mammal.
Ginichi Y. Ohira, 50, is charged with knowingly selling a marine mammal product for an unauthorized purpose in violation of the federal Marine Mammal Protection Act.
