California Moves To Protect Sharks

California Assembly Members Paul Fong and Jared Huffman today introduced a bill to prohibit the sale of shark fins in California to the State Assembly. California is one of the largest sources of demand for shark fin outside Asia and this bill would represent a major step towards reducing pressure on shark populations. Furthermore the bill complements the ban introduced in both Hawaii and the Commonwealth of North Mariana Islands (CNMI) as well as restrictions established by the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT).

Guam Moves To Protect Sharks

With passage of Bill 44, the US Territory of Guam has now become the third place in the Pacific that has taken a definite stand against shark finning, the trade of fins and shark fin soup.

June 2010 marked the legislative breakthrough effort of the Hawaii shark fin bill. In January 2011 the Commonwealth of the Mariana Islands followed and now Guam has joined them by passing Senate bill 44-31.
