International Big Fish Network Strives for Sustainable Stocks

A new, non-profit organization is promoting educational and advocacy efforts to rebuild large-fish stocks in the ocean. The International Big Fish Network (IBFN) will work with commercial and recreational fishing interests to facilitate an international plan that backs long-term, sustainable stocks of tuna, marlin, swordfish, sharks, cod and halibut. The IBFN was founded by Dean W. Crawford, who also founded the Billfish Tournament Network. For more information, visit www.ibfn.org.
