TELL CONGRESS TO JUNK HOUSE BILL 7853
House Bill (HB) 7853 seeks to allow small and medium commercial fishing vessels within the 10.1 to 15 kilometer zone in municipal waters, contrary to the provisions of the amended Fisheries Code. Should this be approved, municipal or small-scale fisherfolk may lose their livelihood and fish catch to commercial fishers.
Help us protect municipal waters and small-scale fishers! We’re calling on the Congress, especially the members of the House Committee on Aquaculture and Fisheries, to #JunkHB7853. Sign up here to send an email to Congress!
