Fish might not be the cutest animals in the ocean, but healthy fish populations are critical for the health of our ocean and coastal communities. In the past four decades, we’ve made meaningful progress toward ending overfishing in U.S. waters and rebuilding fish populations. And we have a little known law with a long name to thank: the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSA).
The MSA has proven that it’s an effective tool to rebuild fish populations. Please take action today and tell the Department of Commerce to ensure that this success story continues for generations to come. Without continued leadership, progress made over the past 40 years could be lost if the Department focuses on short-term economic gains that sacrifice long-term success.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Ocean Conservancy.
Dear Department of Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker and Under Secretary Dr. Kathryn Sullivan,
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Email]
