The Shark Conservation Act is a proposed bill that aims to put an end to shark finning in U.S. waters and closes the loopholes that exist in previous shark finning legislation.
This bill is a necessary step in preventing fishermen from removing fins at sea and will make it illegal to have a fin that is not naturally attached to a shark carcass aboard any type of vessel. The bill will also require that the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) identify and maintain a list of countries that target sharks during fishing activities across the globe in order to encourage other countries to stop shark finning.
