Ban Swordfish Imports and Protect Marine Mammals

Consumers in the United States buy vast amounts of illegally imported swordfish each year, unintentionally harming both marine mammals around the world and domestic economic interests. Help end U.S. support of destructive fisheries by telling the National Marine Fisheries Service to enforce the Marine Mammal Protection Act, a longstanding law that bans such imports until the country providing them proves that their fisheries meet U.S. standards for protecting marine mammals.
