Ban Drift Gillnets!
Drift gillnets are approximately 1-mile long nets used by commercial fishermen to target swordfish and thresher sharks, but instead catch nearly 60 different species of marine life, including tunas, marlins and other fishes. The use of these nets harm recreational fishing, depleting the ocean of fishing opportunities that support local outdoor tourism and jobs.
The Pacific Fisheries Management Council will be debating the use of drift gillnets at their November 15 meeting. Have your voice heard! Sign the petition today!
