The new Congress has hit the ground running, with the introduction of the Shark Conservation Act (HR 81). This bill would require that sharks caught in all U.S. waters be landed whole with their fins still attached. Please tell your Representative to help ensure fast passage of this important piece of legislation.

In addition, the bill will allow the United States to take action against countries that do not have shark finning requirements consistent with those in the U.S.
