U.S. to World: Protect Dolphins, Whales or Lose Access to U.S. Seafood Market

Center for Biological Diversity

Each year around 650,000 whales, dolphins and other marine mammals are unintentionally caught and killed in fishing gear worldwide. Under the new rule, foreign fishermen must meet the same marine mammal protection standards applied to U.S.
