National Saltwater Recreational Fisheries Policy

NOAA Fisheries, the federal agency responsible for the stewardship of our ocean and coastal resources, has drafted an Agency-wide policy on saltwater recreational fisheries, and would like to know what you think about it.

We created this policy to institutionalize within NOAA the key tenets of recreational fishing. The policy is a thoughtful set of principles to guide agency actions and decisions over the long-term.

Comments on the Draft Policy were accepted through December 31, 2014.
