Support a Bill to Buy Out Driftnet Fishing Permits
California’s driftnet fishery for swordfish harms a wide range of marine life, including whales and dolphins. This fishing method indiscriminately captures and drowns these animals. Alternative methods that have lower levels of bycatch exist.
Join us in taking this important first step in finally getting rid of this fishery.
