Menhaden still need your help


The Virginia menhaden bill has been approved to go before the House of Delegates for a vote today. If passed, it could move to the Senate as early as Monday.

Since more than 70 percent of the Atlantic Coast's menhaden harvest is caught in Virginia waters, the General Assembly's decision will be critical to menhaden, the sportfish species who depend on them, and to the future health of the Chesapeake Bay. 

Doesn't a fish so critical to the ecosystem deserve to be conserved?

Even if you've already sent a message, tell your Delegate and Senator to support House Bill 1610.
