PETITION AGAINST CLOSING OCEAN TO FISHING & DIVING

PostTue Jun 01, 2010 10:51 am

Please HELP- Ask Fed. Govt. not to close healthy fisheries to fishing and diving!

SAFMC's preferred alternative right now is closing over 6,000 square miles of our most popular fishing/diving area in the Southeast on the basis of junk science and undue influence from special interests.

Ask South Atlantic Fishery Management Council (SAFMC) and Federal Agencies NOT TO CLOSE DOWN HEALTHY FISHERIES as part of Amendment 17A; Please go to this link and take a moment to fill out the form; then, please share with as many people as possible. http://www.petitiononline.com/SAFMC17A/petition.html

This must be done by this Friday. We need to get as many business owners and their business names signed up as possible. Members of the public are also needed. In a nutshell- this is to ask SAFMC not to close down large areas of ocean to diving or fishing for over 70 species of fish as part of the red snapper rebuilding plan.

SAFMC meets next week in Orlando, and this petition having broad support is very important.

Thank you,
Recreational Fishing Alliance - South Carolina Chapter
