Default Public Comment: Annual Catch Limits

Ahoy!

In an effort to make it easier to participate in the decision making process of the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council we have begun to develop online tutorials and comment forms that will hopefully encourage more interaction from the public.

The first of these videos has just been completed, and I hope you find the time to watch and tell us what you think.

The Gulf Council is expected to take final action on the generic amendment addressing Annual Catch Limits and Accountability Measures in Austin, Texas the week of August 15-19, 2011.

A video outlining the proposed actions in this amendment can be found at:


Comments should be submitted no later than August 8, 2011 at:

The OLE Take my Job Folks.

Thanks Gandy Girl for posting the information.
The problem I have is the timeframe in which we can comment on the issue. The Council has been working on this matter from several to many years of study and planning. "WE The PEOPLE" only have till August 8th. to comment. I guess what I'm saying is, "WE The PEOPLE" only have a few weeks to disect a plan that has been worked on years. Public Comment periods need to longer for ALL issues involved with the Gulf Council..

Wow, 82% Commercial to 18% Recreational TAC on the Black Grouper. These figures are from many years of catch data.

Why do I get the feeling that these changes are going to be stacked in favor of the commercial side of fishing?

Because they are certain to be?
