Tiny fish play a major role in the ocean's food web. Commonly known as forage fish, small schooling fish like herring and anchovies are a crucial food source for larger, more familiar species like tuna, whales, and seabirds. The Pew Environment Group produced this animation to show how reasonable limits on catching for forage fish can help maintain a vibrant and productive Pacific coast ecosystem for generations to come.

Enjoy the animation, and join the chorus of voices asking the Pacific Fishery Management Council to protect these tiny but vitally important fish. Visit www.pewtrusts.org/projects/pacific-ocean-conservation to see how you can help. Remember that your next fishing trip, whale-watching journey, or birding expedition will be brought to you by the forage fish that need your help.
