Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary Expansion petition

89 Signatures Goal: 100

We are against the expansion of the Flower Garden Bank National Marine Sanctuary and the ban on Spearfishing gear, if the boundaries were to expand. Spearfishing is one of the least harmful methods of fishing because their is no bycatch in spearfishing and no abandoned lines or hooks left. Spearfisherman take less than 1% of the fish caught every year. These banks are among the healthiest reefs in the world. Their are three sanctuaries that are already protected. Why change a good thing. We have already been hit with many new regulations recently and it is really hurting fishing as a whole, and the businesses associated with fishing and diving.
