Each summer, humpback whales flock to the California coast to eat herring, krill, and other small tasty fish. But these small fish are dwindling in numbers, in part due to ocean acidification, pollution, and fishing pressure. 

We need to be smarter about how we fish and leave more small fish in the oceans for the big animals to eat.

Right now, there is legislation in the California State Assembly that highlights the importance of prey fish and calls for a scientific approach to fishing for them.

Speak up for California's ocean creatures, big and small.
