Senator Stevens was a champion of the seafood community. He recognized the importance of both economics and the environment in fisheries management. The Magnuson-Stevens Act is evidence of his commitment to ground breaking legislation and is an important part of his legacy. The fact that America’s fisheries are considered among the best managed in the world stands as a living tribute to his work.
