All The Cards Are Now On The Table

What’s being called the “Modern Fish Act is anything but.

H.R. 200, AKA the “Strengthening Fishing Communities and Increasing Flexibility in Fisheries Management Act, will undermine the strong science and conservation measures in the Magnuson-Stevens Act and promotes uncertainty in the future management of our fisheries

H.R.200 also broadens the categories of data deemed to be “best available science” to include information provided by sources untrained in scientific survey methods and data gathering and weakens the mandate to use science-based fishing catch limits.

The Modern Fish Act, in all of its current forms, should never, under any circumstances, become law.
