Menhaden need a break.

“The most important fish in the sea” has been put through more than 50 years of overfishing. The stock is at a record low.  Who is suffering from the loss of menhaden?  You are.
 
Omega Protein has been doing everything it can to prevent the implementation of a total allowable catch and a rebuilding effort. Despite all the evidence to the contrary, they maintain that menhaden are merely suffering from poor recruitment – their half billion pound harvest has nothing to do with it: Don’t let them get away with it! 
 
Agree with all that? So do we.

Start with your ZIP code then fill out the form below to send a message to fisheries managers to encourage them to restore menhaden. They need you like the stripers need them.

We’re asking you to call on the ASMFC to set a limit on the menhaden catch - for the first time ever - at a special meeting of the menhaden board in December. The commercial menhaden harvest must be reduced by 50 percent. The fishery must be allocated so that the reduction industry bears the brunt of the cuts, with most of the harvest earmarked for small-time bait boats.
