ACTION ALERT: Stop the US Federal Government from Interfering with State Shark Fin Bans

The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), the US Federal Agency responsible for ensuring that US fisheries are sustainably managed, has proposed a rule to implement the provisions of the Shark Conservation Act which would actually OVERTURN ("preempt") the shark fin trade bans enacted by ten US states and territories laws. Please let NMFS know that you want them to remove any language that would result in the state and territory shark fin laws being overturned or undermined.

Support efforts in US Congress to protect sharks

There are two efforts in the US Congress that need your support. One is a letter from US Congressmen to the National Marine Fisheries Service urging them withdraw the provision to preempt state shark fin trade laws in the proposed rule to implement the Shark Conservation Act. The second is a Congressional resolution to end shark finning. You can help by calling your Congressman and ask him or her to support both of the letter and resolution.
