The Fisheries and Sea Otter Conservation Coalition is dedicated to achieving balanced management practices for commercial and recreational fisheries and sea otters. Such practices would include creative options that support recovery of sea otters and responsible and economically viable fishing activities.
Far too often, decisions are made by public agencies so as to appear to be seriously solving problems, when actually they are simply avoiding complex issues. The Coalition is intent on addressing the difficult issues of sea otter protection, while also protecting the livelihoods of thousands of people, valid recreational fishing interests and consumers seafood choices.
We know of no credible authority that claims "no management" will recover sea otters and avoid serious conflicts with other protected species and important economic elements of our coastal communities.
The Fisheries and Sea Otter Conservation Coalition is new and growing. We encourage you to review these issues from the larger context they deserve and join with us in this work. Thank you.
