Little Forage Fish Make a Big Difference in the Pacific

The Pacific Fish Conservation Campaign is asking the Pacific Fishery Management Council to hold off on fishing on currently unmanaged species of forage fish, such as smelt, saury, and sandlance. These fish play a critical role in marine ecosystems, because they feed off plankton before becoming food for predators including marine mammals, sea birdsm and predator fish. The Pew Environment Group's Paul Shively and Steve Marx explain why everyone benefits from protecting these species.
