ACTION ALERT: TELL NOAA-FISHERIES TO PROTECT FLORIDA’S LEMON SHARK AGGREGATION

NMFS (National Marine Fisheries Service), the US Federal Agency responsible for ensuring the US fisheries are sustainably managed, has proposed to open the 2014 Atlantic Shark Commercial Fishing Season (including lemon sharks) throughout their Atlantic coastal range, beginning January 1st instead of July 1st, 2014 exposing a vulnerable, vanishing shark aggregation to increased fishing pressure. Please submit comments to NMFS against this proposed action by the Sept. 23 deadline using the information and link in this blog. Thank you!
