Weekly Action List 1/21/10

As advocates it is imperative that we are informed and involved in our local fisheries issues and that managers and political representatives hear our voices regarding the management of our fisheries. Often managers hear very little from the public on the very important decisions they make, so one informed voice speaking for wild fish can have a substantial impact. Taking an hour or less per week to fulfill our duty as guardians of the resource and make public comment on the management of our fisheries is one thing that all of us can do to help wild fish. Starting this week we will be posting a weekly action list which will remind readers of what they can do each week for our wild fish.

For the first installment:

Weekly Action List 1/21/10
