Bill at Congress-Act To Save Sharks?

A new bill is sitting in Congress that might require the bodies of all sharks taken in US Waters to also have fins with them and vice versa.
Shark Diver is in full agreement with the actions taken on this bill but it needs your support.
Here's how you can help today:

US citizens wishing to express support for this important bill should also contact their Representatives in Congress click and type in your zip code.

Many conservationists believe the bill could be improved by adding a requirement that sharks be landed with their fins attached. Those who agree with this should mention their support for a fins-attached requirement in their letters to Congress.

Thanks all, Sonja
