Shark League Urges ICCAT Parties to Act

Date: November 8, 2019

The Shark League is calling on Atlantic fishing nations to take decisive action to safeguard sharks at the upcoming annual meeting of the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT). Specifically, we’re urging ICCAT Parties to propose and work for the immediate adoption of: 

  • A ban on retention and measures to promote survival of endangered makos;
  • Science-based catch limits for blue sharks; and
  • A stronger finning ban that ends the removal of shark fins at sea. 

See our letter for details and stay tuned to #SharkLeague for updates
