National Saltwater Recreational Fisheries Policy

NOAA Fisheries created a policy to better serve America’s recreational saltwater anglers and the communities that rely on them. Crafted with input from recreational fishing and boating communities, conservation orgs, and managers across the nation, the policy reflects anglers’ voices on a variety of concerns, including public access, resource stewardship, regulatory education, science innovation, and better lines of communication with the community.
