Please cosponsor H.R. 737 and S. 877 to prohibit the sale of shark fins

Dear Legislator,

As your constituent, I urge you to cosponsor and push for the passage of H.R. 737 and S. 877, which will prohibit the import, export, possession, trade, and distribution of shark fins and products containing shark fins.

The United States is one of the biggest players in the international trade of shark fins. Although our country prohibits shark finning -- a horrific practice in which fishermen cut off sharks' fins, then toss the mutilated animals back into the ocean where they drown, bleed to death, or are eaten alive by other fish -- many other countries do not. By participating in this global trade, the United States drives shark finning elsewhere as well as the decline of shark populations globally.

Signed,
