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.
