Call to Action on Forage Fish!

Dear Billfish & Tuna Anglers,

The Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council has begun a Scoping Process to consider allowing
giant trawlers to increase their excessive landings of forage species off the Mid-Atlantic region, specifically
chub (Tinker) mackerel. Knowing how important that species and the other forage fish are to
support the recreational billfish and tuna fisheries NOW is the time to email your comments to
the Council.
Attached is a draft letter from TBF for your reference to write your own letter or to email as is
once your name is included.    Please send  us a copy or just an email letting us know your responded to
the Call to Action!
Thank you very much,

Ellen Peel
