The SAFMC is having a public hearing today from 3-7 pm in Cape Canaveral. I am unable to go this time. The kids and I were able to do it earlier this year. So, Jack is going down there to give his testimony and let the council know that he disapproves of the Draconian measures to shut down all of red snapper fishing for the entire southeast coastline.

We are seeing scientists come out in helping the recreational & commercial fishermen with their fish against the closure. We concur that previously placed limits are working and the snapper stocks are coming back in the past couple decades.

There are hearings being held all month long. I'm so glad that we are able to actively voice our concerns.
