H.R. 4051, SHARKED Act

H.R. 4051 would require the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to establish a task force to identify strategies to minimize shark depredation, which is when a shark eats or damages a hooked fish before an angler can reel it in. The task force would include NOAA, the Regional Fishery Management Councils, the National Marine Fishery Commissions, state fish and wildlife agencies, and experts in shark behavior and ecology, and would expire seven years after being established.
