The Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) Fisheries Policy Director Chris Horton will be featured in a virtual conservation seminar series, “The Modern Fish Act: What Progress has been made 1.5 Years Later?” at the 2020 ICAST online event at 3:00 P.M. EST on Monday, July 13. Horton will specifically speak about sections 102 and 103 of the Modern Fish Act, which are Alternative Management Authority and Limited Access Privilege Programs, respectively. The Modern Fish Act was signed into law in January of 2019, and it was the first bill that solely focused on addressing the needs of saltwater recreational fishing. Horton joined several other policy experts in this virtual session in discussing the progress that has been made on the Modern Fish Act since its inception, including the bill’s lead author, Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus Member Sen. Rodger Wicker (R-Miss).
A webinar link will be made available at the time the session is expected to begin. Tune in here!
