To the twenty-six followers of this blog and all the others of you out there who read this, I know, you're busy, and you don't want to write a letter. But your personal letter could make a huge difference with the NPFMC in it's decision to roll back PSC bycatch of halibut for draggers and longliners in its June meeting here in Kodiak. Go to http://www.akmarine.org/our-work/conserve-fisheries-marine-life/halibut-bycatch-sample-letter?portal_status_message=Changes%20saved for guidance in writing a personalized letter to the NPFMC to be received by May 29, 2012. AMCC has prepared a good plan for you to follow. For greenies, they are okay, after all.
Your letter can make a huge difference in this struggle for fair treatment for the resource. If you won't do it, who will? Certainly the opposition will have all their paid staff working overtime to win this one and they will be doing plenty of arm twisting.
