Now in Congress: a bill that would undermine the science-based fisheries management law that’s brought dozens of fish species back from the brink of collapse – ensuring a future of abundance for all.
Rep. Don Young’s H.R. 200 would:
- Represent a significant step backward and hinder federal fisheries managers’ ability to rebuild and maintain sustainable fish stocks.
- Threaten the law’s strong accountability and responsible management measures – including the requirement to use science-based fishing catch limits.
- Threaten the scientific integrity of the stock assessment process.
H.R. 200 is the wrong foundation for reauthorizing Magnuson-Stevens! We can’t go back to the bad old days in the 1980s and ’90s, when poor management caused so many fisheries to collapse – taking jobs and businesses with them.
Tell Congress: Oppose H.R. 200. Our fisheries need science-based management for our fishing communities to thrive. ACT NOW!
