Default Petition to Remove Long Line & Trawler Gear from the Gulf of Mexico

Please sign our petition at:
http://www.petitiononline.com/LongLine/petition.html

and please forward this to friends and family......

PETITION TO REMOVE LONG LINE & TRAWLERS FROM
THE GULF OF MEXICO
The undersigned on this petition hereby state in support that:
In as the Gulf of Mexico has been declared a special environmental
habitat, we request the US House of Representatives and/or the US
Senate sponsor and pass a bill that declare that the Gulf of Mexico is
a special ecological area with unique habitat and characteristics. When
indiscriminate untended commercial fishing gear is allowed to operate
within its boundaries, the Magnusson/Stevens Act's mandate of
sustainable fishery can not be met.
The destruction of habitat and excessive by-catch associated with long
line and trawling gear is incompatible with the Gulf of Mexico's
unique habitat. We respectfully request that the use of any gear not
fully tended by an angler or crew, to include the use of long line and
trawling gear be banned from the waters of the Gulf of Mexico

Thanks!!!
