Three Wins for Keep America Fishing

In hockey, it’s called a hat trick. In bowling, it’s a turkey. No matter what term you choose, the three major wins this week are great news for fishermen.

In Congress, the America’s Conservation Enhancement (ACE) Act was passed by the House of Representatives and now heads to the President’s desk to be signed into law. The House also passed the Direct Enhancement of Snapper Conservation and the Economy through Novel Devices (DESCEND) Act which now heads to the U.S. Senate for approval. Finally, the preliminary findings for a groundbreaking Gulf red snapper study were released.


Keep America Fishing supporters were in the fight on all three issues generating thousands of emails and messages to Congress and regulatory bodies. Thank you for taking action! Your participation made a difference.
