Federal Fisheries Policy Reform Project: Rebuilding Fisheries and Fishing Communities
America's oceans are in trouble and need our help. Pollution, habitat destruction, mismanagement and overfishing have impoverished our ocean resources. Thus, the nation's fisheries have been declining precipitously for decades, with more than 90 percent of the world's large predatory fish, including tuna, swordfish and marlin disappearing from our oceans.
The Federal Fisheries Policy Reform Project calls upon the National Marine Fisheries Service to develop and implement policies, regulations, and fishery management plans designed to eliminate overfishing and protect the marine environment. It works with scientists, fishermen, policy makers, regional fishery managers and conservation organizations throughout the country.
