Senate Bill No. (SBN) 1245 proposed to imprison and fine individuals who catch, sell, purchase, possess, transport, and export sharks and rays across the country. The measure penalizes violators up to 12 years imprisonment or a fine up to P1 million. Inflicting harm or injury on sharks and rays will face the same penalties, SBN 1245 stated. "No effort must be spared to protect the biodiversity of our waters as well as the natural balance of our marine ecosystem, for the enjoyment and economic benefit of future generations of Filipinos," said Sen. Juang Miguel Zubiri.
