Menhaden overfishing
Action Alert - Tuesday, October 30, 2012 

One of the most important fish in the ocean is on the brink of collapse. The menhaden population has decreased by an astounding 88 percent over the last 25 years. These fish are ground up to be used as pet food, fertilizer, and as "fish oil" in supplements. A single $100 million corporation, Omega Protein, takes more than 400 million pounds of these vital fish out of the Atlantic every year. This can't continue. Ask the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission to impose a temporary moratorium to restore "the most important fish in the sea."
