All 535 Members of Congress have now been rated as "friends" or
"enemies" of fish, of their supporting habitats, and of the long-term
interests of U.S. fishermen. The rating can be found at:

The evaluation is based on voting records, actions taken and legislative
initiatives. In all, a series of 30 fish-related issues were used to rate
every Member of Congress. The purpose of this rating is to allow fishermen and
conservationists to recognize which Members of Congress are working to
conserve fish and their ecosystems - particularly inshore habitats such as
rivers, wetlands, estuaries, bays and coastal waters on which 75% of
marine fish depend for their survival - and which Members are working
hard to destroy fish, their environment and thus the future of fishing in the
United States.
