Ask President Obama to make healthy fisheries a priority.

Save sea turtles and fish.
Take a stand to reduce bycatch.

Have you ever heard of bycatch? It’s when unwanted fish and other animals are caught in nets and on hooks. It can be deadly: wildlife like sea turtles and seabirds often don’t survive after being thrown back to the sea.

Right now, the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) is proposing a dangerous rule that doesn’t require the collection of accurate bycatch data, meaning scientists won’t get the information they need to study the full impact of bycatch. This could lead to more overfishing and more depletion of vulnerable species. 

Ocean advocates (like you!) rallied together and asked NMFS to withdraw this terrible bycatch-reporting rule. 

Tell the Obama Administration to stop this rule and protect fisheries—for good.
