BEHIND THE CURTAIN OF THE MODERN FISH ACT

Charles Witek pulls the curtain back on the Modern Fish Act.

At its heart, the Modern Fish Act is an effort by the recreational fishing and boatbuilding industries, abetted by some anglers’ rights groups, to steal some extra fish from the commercial fishing sector, and from the future, by changing the process by which such fish are allocated between commercial and recreational fishermen, and by weakening the conservation and stock rebuilding provisions of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act.
