Take action to help protect marlin, sailfish and spawning bluefin tuna from surface longlining.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is considering major policy changes for the management of Atlantic bluefin tuna. Some of these changes would reduce unintentional catch of bluefin, but NOAA is also considering management options that could undercut protections for deeply depleted bluefin.
NOAA should encourage the transition from conventional longlines to more selective gears and prohibit surface longlining year-round in the Gulf of Mexico.
