Congressional Hearing to Discuss a Ban on Shark Finning

The Committee on Resources, Subcommittee on Fisheries Conservation, Wildlife & Oceans has tentatively scheduled a hearing to discuss banning the practice of shark finning on October 21, 1999. 

Time is running out for you to submit your comments on this very important issue and we urge you to take the few minutes it entails, to simply send an Email to the Committee and support a prohibition on shark finning in all US waters and urge the Committee to support any legislation that would implement such a ban immediately.

A sample of what your Email might say is:

To the Subcommittee on Fisheries Conservation, Wildlife & Oceans,

We wish to support a total and immediate ban of shark finning in all US waters as it is clearly a waste of our natural resources.

That's all you have to do. Just click on this link........ fishery.subcommittee at   and submit a one or two sentence statement or more if you like. It only takes seconds, but it will go a long, long way in Washington.

You can also call or fax your comments in as well to:(202) 226-0200 fax (202) 225-1542 

We encourage everyone who hasn't sent in their support to take this opportunity to do so now.  We would also appreciate it if you could ask members of your organizations or colleagues to support a prohibition of shark finning as well.  The actions of the Western Pacific Council is clearly not in the best interest of the fishery nor the United States who has supported a global ban of shark finning.  Let's give Congress our support to take control, amend the Magnuson Act and prohibit finning.
