John Hourston started this petition to Jason Schratwieser

85 fish species on the International Game Fish Association (IGFA) angling target list are classed as either vulnerable, endangered or critically endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List.

I'm a volunteer at Blue Planet Society so I can help to conserve our amazing marine wildlife - and I'm determined to help save threatened fish.

I'm urging Jason Schratwieser, President of the IGFA, to stop awarding weight-based world records (where the animal has to be killed to qualify) for fish species threatened with extinction.

Please sign petition to protect threatened fish species.
