Help Ban the Last Driftnet Fishery in U.S. Waters
The drift gillnet fishery is responsible for capturing ocean animals in mile-long nets as incidental "bycatch," killing and injuring sharks, dolphins, whales, sea turtles, and sea lions in shocking numbers.
The Senate just passed the Driftnet Modernization and Bycatch Reduction Act (S. 906 and H.R. 1979) to phase out the use of large-scale mesh driftnets off the coast of California — the only place the nets continue to be used in the United States — and transition to less harmful fishing gear.
The bill is on its way to the House of Representatives. Please contact your representatives today and ask them to support the Driftnet Modernization and Bycatch Reduction Act.
