Redfish, Sustainable Fishing, & Magnuson Stevens Fisheries Management Act

October 30th Episode:

We meet with Rob Moir again, hosted by K.C. Armstrong on Women’s Radio Network, and this time Rob explains the importance of the Fisheries Management Act and the difference between sustainable fishing and overfishing. He also reminds us that our role in continuing to influence legislators is important, especially now, when the Magnusson-Stevens Act is up for renewal again. We need to ensure that the Fisheries Councils receive the necessary funding to conduct research that will keep these fish stocks in check and ensure they do not continue to be overfished. Finally, he describes why fish stock regulations are important and why we should care.
