Dear Friend of the Sea,

Looking for a simple way to help the ocean today? With the Gulf Fishery Management Council's aquaculture plan under review right now, we have a chance to demand that strong, national environmental and economic safeguards are in place that protect marine ecosystems and the communities that depend on them.

If you haven't already, please join us in calling for a sustainable future for US fish farming now — and get your friends involved, too.

Thanks for helping us start a sea change — from protecting the Gulf, to sharks, volunteer divers, and recipes, there’s something here for you no matter why you love the ocean!
