TURTLE ISLAND RESTORATION NETWORK wrote -Sharks are important members of the San Francisco Bay ecosystem. Sharks pupped in the Bay are exiting and inhabiting nearshore waters and regions from British Columbia to Mexico. These sharks are being fished inside the Bay for sport and outside of the Bay recreationally and as bycatch in commercial fisheries. Protecting pregnant females and females of reproductive age, and the ecosystem supporting shark nurseries will protect fish, habitat and sharks. Please join us in our campaign goal to establish the first shark sanctuary in North America.
