    Here is an opportunity to show solidarity with our neighbor to the south in their bid to protect their artificial reefs in federal waters as they are protected in their own. A large showing of support by New Jersey for Delaware will be remembered when we apply for the same protection for our reefs. Please take the time to attend and show your support. If you cannot attend, please make an effort to write a note to the Council on this issue when it is open for public comment.

    These are the types of things that many fishermen find themselves unable to attend because of work, or too busy when the meetings are more convenient.
    That's understandable, but as NJDiver has pointed out, we can also participate by getting involved when they ask for public comment.

    If you care and want have your voice heard, please consider doing just that, making a public comment.
    Thanks for posting and keeping us in the loop, NJ Diver.
