Threats to Fisheries Under the Trump Administration Executive Orders and Plans for Oil and Gas Exploration and Drilling

This report reviews the actions President Trump has taken with respect to fisheries due to recent proposals to expand oil and gas exploration and drilling. Through a series of actions since the start of his administration, the Trump administration draft proposes to open up or review 92% of the U.S. marine area on the Outer Continental Shelf to oil exploration and drilling and 71% of total U.S. marine area. These actions threaten decades of marine conservation.
