Paul J. Diodati, Director: Remove 'Shark Wranglers' from DMF permit to capture and tag great whites.
Boston Herald Article
Jul 27, 2012 — The Boston Herald did a write up today on the Shark Wranglers coming to the Cape. Chris Fischer was interviewed and said his catch and release methods are "safe." These methods caused injury to a white shark in the Farallones and a mortality in South Africa. This September, Fischer will use the same catch and release methods in waters off the coast of Massachusetts.
I have added NOAA- Protected Resources Division's Regional Administrator to this petition and raised the signature goal to 1,000. We are asking NOAA and DMF to take a stand and stop this show from coming here, where the species is already protected and the waters are regulated. The white shark faces enough threats, please don't let a reality TV show continue to be one of them.
