HMS Permit Holder Petition to BAN High Seas Driftnets

HMS Stakeholder Supporters

Highly Migratory Species (HMS) Vessel Permit Holders

  • Below is a list of Commercial Fishing Vessels, and their States in the US, who demand a "BAN" on high seas driftnets!
  • These vessels hold permits for fishing sustainable fishing methods.
  • This method is known as the "Pole &Troll" fishery for "Highly Migratory Species" (HMS).

These vessels use barb-less hooks and have virtually "O" by-catch in their fishery. They, and other fisheries, are directly effected by "High Seas" Driftnets.This "Existing Fishery" has been depleted on the high seas.

All vessel owners have signed a petition, addressed to US congress & the United Nations demanding a Ban on High Seas drift net fishing.

We, at OceanFAD, commend these vessel owners for coming forward to help eliminate this devastating & highly destructive fishery, known as "The Wall of Death", from our oceans. Our "Highly Migratory Species" must be allowed to migrate!
