Take action: Thank Congress for Protecting Our Oceans! Bipartisan compromise gives recreational fishermen a win while keeping strong standards in place. It’s one of America’s greatest environmental success stories: Once dramatically overfished, our oceans are replenishing. Species have been brought back from the brink — all while American fisheries continued to thrive. But this year, a quiet attack in Congress would have put all of that at risk by exempting key fisheries from science-based catch limits, undermining the recovery of depleted fish populations, and more. EDF Action supporters leapt into action, flooding Congress with calls and emails — and all of that changed. The final Modern Fish Act, as passed by Congress, responds to the demands of recreational fishing advocates without jeopardizing sustainability — and keeps this crucial environmental success story intact. Thank Congress for this stunning improvement! Recipients Your SenatorsYour Representative Message Modern Fish Act -- bipartisanship at work Dear [Decision Maker], * Personalize your message I am thrilled to hear that through hard work, Congress has managed to take the Modern Fish Act -- which was once a conservation threat -- and turn it into a bipartisan achievement. By protecting the core elements of the Magnuson-Stevens Act, it ensures that clear, science-based conservation standards and a variety of tools for regional fisheries management continue to remain in place. Thank you for working so hard to reach an agreement on a bill that responds to the demands of recreational fishing advocates without jeopardizing either sustainability or Americans' access to local seafood. If (and when) similar legislation is proposed in the future, please continue to ensure that U.S. fisheries management remains effective, flexible, and a global model of success.
