Last week, the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation approved S. 1520, the Modernizing Recreational Fisheries Management Act of 2017, commonly referred to as the Modern Fish Act. This legislation calls for critically important updates to the oversight of federal fisheries, including adding more tools to the management toolbox, improving data collection techniques, and examining some fishery allocations that are based on decades-old decisions.


Chris Manusco of the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership recently penned a great analysis of the bill and it’s potential benefits for recreational anglers.
