Tell Congress to oppose H.R. 1335, a harmful bill which threatens healthy sustainable fisheries!

Urge your Representative to oppose H.R. 1335 - Strengthening Fishing Communities and Increasing Flexibility in Fisheries Management Act.

H.R. 1335 undermines healthy and sustainable fisheries.  It alters the Magnuson-Stevens Act (MSA) by imposing arbitrary and unnecessary requirements that would harm the environment and the economy.  All of the progress achieved to date in rebuilding overfished fisheries would come to an abrupt halt. This harmful bill would introduce uncertainty and delays in rebuilding fisheries, undermine the use of science-based actions to end and prevent overfishing, and weaken the protections provided by other important environmental statutes.

Please take a few moments today to urge your Member to support balanced legislation for healthy and sustainable fisheries, and oppose any efforts to weaken and harm them.
