We’ve made incredible progress in reversing overfishing. This has been good for both the environment and jobs in fishing. Through smart fishery legislation, we’ve been able to bring back fish whose populations were crashing due to years of overfishing.
But all our progress is about to be destroyed! In the House of Representatives, Rep. Hastings (R-WA) is trying to pass legislation that would create a new law allowing overfishing and eliminate deadlines to rebuild fish populations.
Please take action today and tell your Congressional Representative to say NO to Rep. Hastings legislation when it comes to the floor for voting.
Healthy fish populations are essential to ocean ecosystems and to the local economies that depend on them. Together, we can truly make a difference.
Personalized letters help make an even bigger impact. Please take one extra minute to include in your letter why the ocean matters to you or why this issue is important to you in your daily life.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Ocean Conservancy.
Dear [Decision Maker],
