Healthy Forage Fish Populations Are Vital To Healthy Sport Fish Populations
Forage fish form the foundation of the ocean’s food chain and are essential to the success of America’s “Blue Economy.” A new bill, S.1484, the Forage Fish Conservation Act, will help ensure the smaller fish in the ocean are sustainably managed.
Why it matters:
The Forage Fish Conservation Act would require the role forage fish play in the marine ecosystem be accounted for when federal fisheries managers set catch limits on them.
Why you should care:
Forage fish provide food for nearly all recreationally important fish species, as well as seabirds and other marine life.
