Marine Management : Senate approves fisheries bill to bolster dwindling stocks

The Senate unanimously approved a bill to overhaul national marine fisheries management and strengthen protections against overfishing. The bill mandates annual catch limits, reauthorizes the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, and makes West Coast salmon fishermen eligible for disaster assistance. Speaking to the Associated Press, Executive Director of the Marine Fish Conservation Network Lee Crockett called the bill a step forward, and an improvement over the House version which “almost ensures that fish populations will continue to decline.”
