Show support for HR 5804 – the Billfish Conservation Act of 2010

The Billfish Report strongly urges readers to support a bill proposed in the US House of Representatives (HR 5804 – the Billfish Conservation Act of 2010).  Under the terms of this legislation, no billfish or products containing billfish can be bought, sold, imported, exported, or possessed.

Here’s a link to the content of this landmark legislation…which explicitly prohibits trade of billfish

Crucial legislation that can really make a difference…if only the world would adopt the same stance that these great legislators are promoting.
