    "On August 25, 2017, Aquatic Kingdom Inc. was ordered to pay, in the Ontario Court of Justice, a combined total penalty of $25,000 for violations relating to the illegal importation of corals under the Wild Animal and Plant Protection and Regulation of International and Interprovincial Trade Act ($15,000) and the Customs Act ($10,000).
