Webinar link will be available for on-demand viewing at this time.


Signed into law in January, 2019, the Modern Fish Act was the first-ever bill passed by Congress that focused entirely on addressing the needs of the saltwater recreational fishing community. Much of the bill provided new guidance and direction that needs to be acted upon by federal fisheries managers. In this session you’ll hear from the office of the bill’s lead author, Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), and several policy experts on what progress has been made to date in implementing the Modern Fish Act, and where more needs to be done.
