The unanimous vote by the legislature in Kosrae ties into efforts to create the world’s largest regional shark sanctuary, the Micronesia Challenge.
During last year’s Micronesian Chief Executive Summit, Kosrae Governor Lyndon Jackson and other leaders pledged to create an over 2.9 million square kilometre Micronesia Regional Shark Sanctuary.
When signed into law, the Kosrae sanctuary will ban the sale, trade, and possession of shark products in Kosrae and prohibit commercial shark fishing in the 20-kilometre area under its jurisdiction.
