Conservation group rolls out new fishing campaign

The Center for Coastal Conservation said it launched “Let America Fish.”

The Center for Coastal Conservation said it launched “Let America Fish,” a communications campaign focused on adjustments to the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act that benefit recreational fishing.

The campaign highlights the impact of the recreational fishing and boating industries on the U.S. economy, speaks to the conservation efforts put forth by recreational anglers and seeks to demonstrate that current laws are unbalanced and therefore limit access for recreational anglers.

“Recreational boating and fishing are two of America’s oldest and most beloved pastimes,” Center for Coastal Conservation president Jeff Angers said in a statement. “They are family-friendly activities that connect people to nature and help them to develop an abiding respect for our natural resources.”

“Through the ‘Let America Fish’ campaign, we hope to help lawmakers and the general public understand why current federal fisheries law is unfair to the recreational angling community,” Angers said. “Revising federal law and agency guidance will ensure fair and reasonable access to America’s fisheries and improve fisheries management to guide the future of recreational fishing and boating.”
