Healthy Fish for a Healthy Ocean

Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the Magnuson-Stevens Act

From the smallest shrimp to the largest bluefin tuna, all ocean fish species benefit from the protections provided through the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSA). It’s thanks to the MSA that our nation is now home to 39 rebuilt fish populations.

Take Action

Join Ocean Conservancy in celebrating the MSA being ‘over the hill’ by sending a message to Congress on Capitol Hill. It’s up to all of us to make sure that we build off of the gains made over the past 40 years, opposing efforts to water down or weaken the law in the name of short-term economic gains.

Protect the future of America’s fisheries. Progress made over the past 40 years could be easily lost if the Department focuses on short-term economic gains that sacrifice long-term success.
