Sharks are among the most vulnerable animals taken in high seas fisheries for tuna and swordfish. The International Commission for Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) has led regional fisheries bodies in adoption of shark measures, but has yet to align its finning ban with best practice or agree basic, science-based limits for key shark species.

This November, 14-21, citizen of these governments, join us in urging support at #ICCAT2016 for science-based blue shark limits and a ban on at-sea shark fin removal.
