Important upcoming meetings!

Beginning Tuesday, the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council will hold a series of public meetings over the next two weeks to seek input on proposed fishery management plan amendments that will affect the black sea bass trap fishery, gray triggerfish, Spanish and king mackerel, and how Annual Catch Limits are calculated on some unassessed snapper-grouper species.

These are important fishery issues and we urge you to participate in these meetings and/or to submit written comments.

Help spread the word about these important meetings by forwarding this email to others you know with a stake in the fishing industry – recreational or commercial – and posting this email on Facebook by using this link: http://www.sustainablefishing.org/important_upcoming_meetings
