Bill Addressing Growing Conflict Between Sharks and Fishermen Clears House

In both the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, sharks are increasingly intercepting fish being landed by recreational and commercial fishermen, creating frustration for anglers and challenges for fisheries sustainability. Fortunately, a bill recently passed by the U.S. House of Representatives will create a task force of experts to explore shark depredation and develop recommendations on how to avoid or mitigate shark interference with important recreational and commercial fisheries.

"There is no better way to help assure the strength of CSF and future opportunities for hunters and anglers."

NASCAR Hall of Famer and CSF Board Chairman Richard Childress joined the CSF Board of Directors to bring the same level of enthusiasm and dedication he brings to racing to ensuring the rights of hunters and anglers. Childress, an avid outdoorsman, is as passionate about giving back as he is about hunting and fishing. To keep supporting CSF well into the future, Mr. Childress became a CSF Heritage Fund Donor. Please follow this link to learn more about Mr. Childress' story and how you too can provide a voice for America's sportsmen and women via planned giving. 

Our outdoor heritage needs YOU!  Get involved today so we can keep fighting for tomorrow.
