Here are recent advocacy letters that have resulted from that collaborative work.

This poster for tuna fishers shows five ray species found in tuna fisheries. It also provides location and life-cycle information and illustrates “acceptable” and “not acceptable” handling and release techniques to reduce ray bycatch.

“Saving the Mobula Rays” is shared courtesy of ISSF Seafood Sustainability Contest Grand Prize Winner Melissa Cronin.

Translated versions of this poster will be available.
