I urge everyone to send a brief statement to the addresses below:

Say you are opposed to the winter flounder quota increase for commercial fishermen!

It has been over two years since this thread has seen light. "Results" from my meeting and everyones letters to the DMF were successful! On July 26th I met with Paul Diodati and had copies of 100's of letters opposing the increases. I asked him how many we need and he said "one"!
With me was writer Ron Powers and Ron had letters from 14 tackle shops that were all citing the lack of flounder in Boston Harbor in the spring of 2013. Paul said the issue was not the State licensed draggers but rather the Federally licensed ones. He went on to say that the federal boats had virtually NO LIMITS when fishing in state waters.
I asked him what can he do about it and he said he would push a rule to make federal boats comply with state regulations when they are fishing state waters. That rule became effective in 2014. The brutal winter of 2013/2014 kept the draggers at the dock most of the time so the flounder piled into Boston Harbor without being "brutalized" and we had a great season again.
Note that things seem to be all related to "cause and effect". If you tell the draggers they can kill this body of fish and they all go there and work the area outside Boston Harbor and the flounder dissappear it should be pretty safe to say the issue is the draggers. Yet even at that, I had people, scientists, mind you, tell me that the flounder vanishing in one season like that was because of global warming! And to think, these people "know" they are smarter than us.....
