The Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act is now under congressional revision. We refer to this act as the Fish Bill because of its central purpose to protect fish in a manner that ensures the “greatest overall benefit to the nation.” This Policy Brief outlines key evidence and recommendations for members of Congress to utilize throughout this Fish Bill reauthorization in order to preserve marine environments, protect fishing communities, and improve our seafood supply chain.
