Keep Our Oceans Fishy

There is a bill in the U.S. House of Representatives that would undermine and undo years of successful work to manage the health of America’s fisheries. It would undermine our nation's key fishery management law, the Magnuson-Stevens Act, which has has helped halt overfishing, protect essential fish habitats and rebuild depleted stocks. 

We must defend our oceans, before it’s too late.

H.R. 200 would allow special interests to trump science, while also threatening to gut our key fisheries law. Fish, sharks and coastal communities would all bear the brunt of this ill-conceived bill.

Tell your representative now to oppose H.R. 200 before our oceans pay the price.
