They adjust the closuer in Federal water daily as needed,they have opened 2 places back up in the last week,you really should go to some of the state and federal web sites and LEARN about it before posting your local rumors on the internet which could have a impact on your ability to sell Fla seafood.

Right now that oil is sitting on top of some of the best tuna fishing in the gulf.  No one has a clue on what this disbursement is doing to the fisheries.  Most of the coastline of La. West of the Mississippi River is closed to all fishing, commercial and recreational.

All your licenses should have already been bought the notices came out 2 or 3 months ago and the new tags have to be on your traps in 3 weeks.

If they can't afford their license fee's they don't need to be in the business. Too many people got their hand out looking for a free ride.

Right after BP announced that they were giving commercial fisherman 5,000 the number of commercial license issued soared.  Many got money they didn't deserve.  That's why BP is investigating and delaying payment to fisherman.  I know 1 guy that got money he didn't deserve.  Right now my fishing grounds are open and unaffected but the estuaries are being destroyed.  Adult crabs are OK but I fear we lost 1 maybe 2 generations of little crabs.  Only time will tell.

I worry more about the long term effects on our fisheries. I'm in this business for the long haul not short term welfare. I can still crab and sell crabs. I do worry about stone crab season, IF, IF it's affected I will file a claim or a lawsuit, but if I can crab I'll crab. Don't have any problem with legitimate claims but this reminds me of after a hurricane, all the honest people trying to get their life back and all the scumbags with their hand out crying the guvments screwing us. Pizzs me off!

Here you go, just remember if some of these endorsement are not renewed by Sept 30th you will lose them.

To: [email protected] fishing license renewal period extended

 

Gov. Charlie Crist is giving Florida’s commercial fishermen and seafood dealers an extra three months to renew their licenses this year.  The governor announced this action to help reduce financial hardships Florida’s fishing communities are experiencing due to the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

“The commercial fishing industry needs some time to regroup because of misperceptions that Florida’s seafood has been affected by the oil spill,” Gov. Crist said.  “Our fishermen continue to harvest abundant amounts of fresh Florida seafood to supply fish markets and restaurants for people to enjoy, and we want to do whatever we can to help them continue to do that.”

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has issued an order, which states that wholesale dealer, retail dealer and saltwater products licenses, endorsements and tags currently in effect for the 2009-2010 license year are extended from July 1 until Sept. 30.  This extension will allow the industry to harvest, purchase, sell or transport saltwater products after July 1 this year with their 2009-2010 licenses until their licenses are renewed for the 2010-2011 year or until Sept. 30, whichever is sooner.

The FWC order, which can be viewed online at MyFWC.com/OilSpill, takes effect at 12:01 a.m. on July 1 and will remain in effect through Sept. 30.  The order directs wholesale and retail dealers and all law enforcement officers to recognize the extension of the license year for the effected fishers, and all other provisions governing wholesale dealer, retail dealer and saltwater products licenses, endorsements and tags in Florida remain in effect.  This order does not change any other licensing rules, including renewal-qualifying periods.

“Gov. Crist’s decision to give Florida’s commercial fishing industry some relief is a good one,” said FWC Chairman Rodney Barreto.  “We intend to do everything we can to help these folks weather the damage being done because of the oil spill.”

More information on Florida’s commercial fishing regulations is available online at MyFWC.com/Rules; click on “Fishing – Saltwater.”

I'm with you guys.  i planned my retirement from the fire dept. so I can crab till I'm 60 or so.  Just hope there are some crabs left.
I'll might have to talk to a lawyer defer any lawsuit just to make up the difference.

Bring em home,shoot why wait because that oil may be there in 2 or 3 month or it may never come. AGAIN if your bluecrab endorsement is not renewed by Sept 30th you will lose it oil or no oil.
