Those conditions would include: assessment by the relevant Fishery Management Council on the impacts on fish, fishing communities and marine environment; payment by the polluter for any cleanup and provision of compensation for the economic and job loss to the U.S. fishing industry and communities; payment by the polluter to test fish to ensure consumers are protected from toxins that have entered the food chain and to test water quality to help fishermen avoid areas of pollution and find the safest areas to fish.

(267) - HR 1335: Magnuson-Stevens Reauthorization - Passage 
June 01, 2015 - Passage of the bill that would reauthorize the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act through fiscal year 2019. The measure would authorize $397 million annually through fiscal year 2019 for federal activities to carry out the law. The bill would eliminate the requirement under current law that generally establishes a 10-year period for rebuilding overfished or depleted fisheries and would instead require regional fishery councils to set rebuilding periods to the time it would take for the fishery to rebuild without any fishing occurring, plus one additional generation to be spawned. The measure also would modify various requirements regarding "catch limits" for specific species included in fisheries management plans and would prohibit fisheries councils in four regions from implementing any new "catch share" program unless it has been approved by an industry referendum vote; it would allow such programs to be implemented in the other four regions only if a majority of those eligible to participate in the fishery first petitions the department. The measure also would extend state management for recreational fishing of the red snapper fishery in the Gulf of Mexico out to nine nautical miles from the coast. Motion agreed to 225-152.
