Ask SAFMC and Federal Agencies NOT TO CLOSE DOWN HEALTHY FISHERIES; Please go to this link and take a moment to fill out the form; then, please share with as many people as possible. http://www.petitiononline.com/SAFMC17A/petition.html
This must be done by this Friday. We need to get as many business owners and their business names signed up as possible. Members of the public are also needed.

SAFMC meets next week in Orlando, and this petition having broad support is very important.
