FSM For 10% : Conserve 10% of FSM EEZ

This petition had 219 supporters

At present, all of FSM waters are open to commercial fisheries. There is very high fishing activity going on in the FSM Exclusive Economic Zone, posing the threat of over-fishing and resource depletion from future generations. The FSM for 10% campaign supports President Christian's commitment to setting aside that much percentage of our waters as a conservation and management effort. Campaign partners throughout the 4 States in FSM recognize this commitment as a way to enhance the sustainability of our tuna fish stock for food security purposes, and for resource protection reasons. While fisheries is critical to National revenue options, FSM people still owe themselves strategic resources stewardship in the longest term. So, we ask the FSM Congress to make this happen by passing CB 19-173, which for the most part, will achieve this 10% commitment. Or, to enact relevant bill that will accomplish the same conservation and management objectives. Yes to FSM for 10% campaign.
