HR 6393 Sturgeon Conservation and Sustainability Act Introduced to the House!
In the absence of a captive-bred exemption and with the pending Endangered Species Act listing of several farmed sturgeon species, numerous U.S. farmers are in immediate danger of being put out of business!
The National Aquaculture Association recommends members contact their Representative to support H.R.6393 Sturgeon Conservation and Sustainability Act!
Congressman Mike Waltz introduced the Act to amend the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and allow American farmers to continue their sturgeon operations while also ensuring the longevity of the species across the globe. Co-sponsoring this legislation are Representatives Kat Cammack (FL-3), Scott Franklin (FL-15), and Neal Dunn (FL-2).
In September, Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Rick Scott (R-FL) introduced companion legislation¸ S.2870, in the Senate to provide the same reprieve. Similarly, NAA members should contact their Senators to request support.
