Join the Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance for an action to defend the ocean commons and support community-based fishermen. 

Family fishermen and supporters are inviting ally networks to join them and call on Congress, NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service, and the New England Fisheries Council to stop the corporate takeover and privatization of the ocean and fisheries, to protect the democratic process and to restore the health of the marine ecosystem. 

Your support in the past -- through written testimony or signing petitions -- has brought unprecedented diversity of public input to the policies being considered by the New England Fishery Management Council. You have also helped create safe space for fishermen who have felt alone and often harassed for speaking out to actually stand up and be heard.

Whether you eat local seafood, support family food producers/local living economies/healthy oceans/our public commons/the public process, or simply want to keep those in power accountable, this is a fight that affects us all.

Lunch provided! RSVP to Brett at [email protected]
