From Oceana:

Right now, greater than 200 scientists from throughout the USA despatched a letter urging Congress to guard the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Administration Act (MSA), which is the first regulation governing marine fisheries administration in U.S. waters. The letter, led by Dr. Andrew Rosenberg of the Union of Involved Scientists, criticizes “legislative efforts that may weaken science-based administration of U.S. marine fish populations.” Particularly, the letter calls out H.R. 200, the Strengthening Fishing Communities and Growing Flexibility in Fisheries Administration Act, which was launched earlier this yr and would weaken or get rid of science-based administration necessities and cut back the standard of science utilized in administration selections.
