On December 31, President Trump signed the Modernizing Recreational Fisheries Management Act of 2018 (Modern Fish Act) into law, a bipartisan effort in the 115th Congress to improve federal fisheries management for America’s 11 million saltwater anglers. National Marine Manufacturers Association President, Thom Dammrich, said, “This is historic for the recreational boating and fishing community, capping years of hard work to responsibly modernize recreational saltwater fisheries management. The Modern Fish Act is a critical first-step solution towards establishing a framework for expanding access to recreational saltwater fishing, while ensuring conservation and sustainability remain top priorities in fisheries management.” For more information, www.nmma.org.
