Council Letter to President Biden, POTUS on Marine National Monuments (June 16, 2021)

Key Council Correspondence

The Western Pacific Regional Fishery Management Council voted unanimously to help US island fishing communities by exploring options to remove commercial fishing prohibitions in the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument (“MNM”), and allow fishery resources to be sustainably managed under the authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation Act. The purpose of this letter is to inform you of the negative impacts that American fishing industries, seafood consumers and indigenous communities face as result of non-science-based proclamations establishing an MNM in the Western Pacific Region.
