In testimony delivered before the U.S. Senate, Captain Bubba Cochrane of Galveston, TX, a commercial fisherman and President of the Shareholders’ Alliance, urges Congress to preserve and build on the successful track record of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act.
We understand the need to protect fish in order to protect fishermen’s businesses.
Our primary mission is to promote and protect sustainable fisheries and the fishing industry in the Gulf of Mexico. Organized by fishermen for fishermen, the Gulf of Mexico Reef Fish Shareholders’ Alliance is leading the region with effective and proactive advocacy and national policy and seafood educational campaigns in order to ensure healthy fisheries for today and future generations.
The Shareholders' Alliance is in the business of solving fisheries problems.
We work diligently to strengthen and preserve the reef fish fishing industry and the Gulf’s fishing communities through an advocacy program that champions innovation and conservation-oriented practices. We are fishery leaders creating a positive and measurable impact at the local, state, and federal levels.
Our fishermen work closely with local fishing communities, regional managers, and federal representatives to educate and inform stakeholders to ensure that we can continue to provide the American public with a sustainable source of domestically-caught Gulf of Mexico seafood.
From the hook to the table, consumers deserve the highest quality, authentic, safe and traceable seafood the Gulf can provide. And we are here to provide it.
