Sustainable Fisheries Act Amendment

In 1996 the Sustainable Fisheries Act amended the MSA with new requirements to:

(1) conserve fish stocks and restore overfished populations,

(2) assure that membership on regional councils is fair and balanced,

(3) impose a moratorium on creating new individual fishing quota programs,

(4) increase emphasis on social benefits that might better preserve traditional small-scale fishermen, and

(5) strengthen provisions to minimize                                          bycatch (incidental catch) and                                                       restore and protect habitat.
