Urge your legislators to vote YES to America's primary fishing law
The U.S. House of Representatives will vote on the Modern Fish Act (included in H.R. 200) on Tuesday, June 26, 2018.

It is critical that you contact your Members of Congress today and strongly urge them to support the Modern Fish Act.

The Modern Fish Act will make vital changes to federal fishing regulations, including several key provisions contained in both bills that are supported by a broad coalition of recreational fishing and boating organizations:

Allows for recreational fisheries to be managed using more appropriate management tools
Modifies the annual catch limit requirement to allow for more adaptive approaches
Requires managers in the southeastern U.S. to perform long-overdue examinations of fishery allocations, based on modern criteria
Limits the spread of catch share programs that have negatively impacted anglers and fishing communities
Promotes consideration of new data collection methods that could improve fisheries management and conservation
Ensures exempted fishing permits help fisheries management and conservation - rather than the status quo which can hinder both
You can make a difference by sending a pre-written letter to your Representatives asking them to vote YES on the Modern Fish Act. It's simple and takes less than five minutes. Send your letter by clicking the link below.
