Herring Alliance

This alliance, organized through the Pew Charitable Trusts, is "a coalition of 109 organizations representing every coastal Atlantic state from Maine to North Carolina, to advocate for catch limits that account for the needs of predators, measures to reduce bycatch, and protections of critical feeding areas for predator fish, seabirds, and other marine wildlife from the impacts of the industrial herring fishery."
