The River Herring one tough bait fish. They can travel thousands of miles, the fiercest avoiding predators along the way. But they are no match for industrial fishing fleets. http://bit.ly/atlanticobservers

These massive boats, called midwater trawlers, catch millions of these important forage fish every year. Since 1970, river herring populations have declined 93%.

This is bad news for the predators that eat river herring, like tuna, cod, striped bass, sea-birds, dolphins, and whales.

Putting fishery observers on industrial river herring trawlers can help restore river herring populations. Ask federal fishery managers to hold these fleets accountable: http://www.pewtrusts.org/en/projects/...
