Hope everyone has been notified!

The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will begin distributing a second round of relief funds from the $1.2 million in state funding that was allocated earlier this year, to qualified blue crab waterman affected by the past three crabbing seasons. To qualify, a blue crab waterman has to have reported a crabbing total of 100 or more days during the 2001 and 2002 seasons.
“Qualified crab harvesters who received a check earlier this year will automatically receive a second $500 grant,” said Mike Slattery, Assistant Secretary for Forests, Parks, Wildlife and Fisheries. “DNR, along with Governor Ehrlich, is committed to doing everything we can to help our watermen through this rough patch.”
The funding was a part of the Consolidated Appropriations Resolution of 2003 passed by Congress and signed by President Bush earlier this year. Maryland representatives both on the state and federal level were instrumental in ensuring that funding was available was included to help the blue crab fisheries affected by reduced harvests and sales of blue crabs.
A total of $5 million was appropriated for the Blue Crab Fishery, to be divided between Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Delaware, Georgia, New Jersey and Virginia according to the amount of catch landed by each state.
The funds must be used only for:
•   personal assistance with priority given to food, energy needs, housing assistance, transportation fuel, and other urgent needs;
•   assistance for small businesses including fishermen, fish processors, and related businesses serving the fishing industry;
•   domestic product marketing and seafood promotion; and
•   state seafood testing programs.
