It’s Time to Get This Right

ALEXANDRIA, VA - There's nothing like the adventure of saltwater fishing. The adrenaline rush of hooking into a billfish, a big striper, or hard-fighting redfish is second to none. That thrill is undoubtedly what attracts over 11 million Americans to the sport, according to the American Sportfishing Association.

Unfortunately, the current laws that govern federal saltwater fisheries are out of date and have never taken recreational anglers into account. This has led to shortened or even cancelled seasons, reduced bag limits, and unnecessary restrictions.

The good news is - there's a new bipartisan bill making its way through Congress that should fix those problems.

The Modernizing Recreational Fisheries Management Act, or Modern Fish Act for short, has been introduced in both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives with broad, bipartisan support. Rather than focusing on commercial fishing, the new bill is a comprehensive package specifically aimed at addressing the needs of the nation's 11 million saltwater recreational anglers.

The Modern Fish Act will improve access to America's federal waters and promote conservation of our natural marine resources. Simply put, that means more and better fishing.

Tell your Senators and Representative to support the Modern Fish Act today.
