Conserving and Revitalizing Wild Ocean Fisheries

For the last two decades, the Marine Fish Conservation Network has united fishermen, conservationists, scientists and citizens around a shared mission: conserving and revitalizing wild ocean fisheries.

Our Mission

The Network Unites Fishermen, Conservationists, Scientists & Citizens

The Network Unites Fishermen, Conservationists, Scientists & Citizens

The Marine Fish Conservation Network is a coalition of commercial and recreational fishing associations, regional and national conservation groups, aquaria, and marine science organizations committed to sustaining fish populations, healthy marine ecosystems, and fishing communities. Our goal is to maintain and strengthen the conservation and management objectives of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act.

We are committed to ending overfishing, rebuilding fish populations, and fostering a fisheries management system
that protects vibrant marine ecosystems and the thriving local communities that depend on them.
