Longlines target conservation zone...again

Longliners are again targeting the East Florida Coast Pelagic Longline Closed Area with some of the most indiscriminate fishing gear in the ocean. Industrial harvesters will go to any lengths to plunder the gains made in the conservation zones and it is up to concerned anglers like you to turn them back. Please see the alarming details of this permit application below and take a few minutes to send a message to your representatives on the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council. Tell them to reject this permit to let a fleet of longliners target swordfish and other billfish in an identified nursery area. Your time and effort could be the difference in making sure destructive fishing gear is kept out of this conservation zone.
