Congress passes bill to help save world's sharks

Conservationists called the measure a major step to save a species in trouble. The legislation requires that sharks caught legally must be landed with fins attached in all U.S. waters. Regulations already had banned cutting off the fins and dumping the bodies in the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic, but not in the Pacific.
