On expansion of the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument: “I applaud President Obama for his continued efforts to protect and preserve our oceans and ocean ecosystems for future generations. It is important that the United States demonstrate international leadership in ocean protection."

On illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing: “I encourage the task force to also address strengthening the capacity of, and increasing resources for, enforcement against perpetrators of illegal fishing. Focusing on seafood fraud is important, but more can be done to stop this fraud from the beginning.”









Leadership:  As the Chair of the subcommittee that has jurisdiction over most ocean issues, Congresswoman Bordallo understands the importance of strong ocean education, research, and conservation legislation. This is why she has authored or supported many bills designed to strengthen marine life protection and explore the oceans. Congresswoman Bordallo commended President Obama for expanding the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument, establishing an Interagency Ocean Policy Task Force, and she supports a strong National Ocean Policy.
