Not on the agenda but I would not be surprised if we also discuss changes to the first few months of the season in order to avoid the glut of recent years.  One option that was discussed in the hallway (and there may have been a petition) was to reduce the number of bu. per vessel and open the season earlier than April 1 so as to ease into production.

Public comment is accepted on agenda (or other if you ask staff before the meeting starts) items.

Sounds like Va has their own set of stupid policy makers. Glut of crabs? It's not the crabbers fault. The gult is created by crabs being caught all winter long from SC/GA/FL and God Bless them guys from MS/LA who are glad to get rid of them after Katrina. The other problem comes from lack of picking houses or picking houses not ready for the season. That is all picking houses up/down the coast. If regulators/policy makers REALLY want to make a difference heres my suggestion. Get petitions protesters whatever it takes and get the importation of forgein crab/crabmeat halted. Maybe for good or with a reduction or even impose higher taxes for the suppliers. We as from consumer,crabber,picking house and vendors really need to step up and support our local products and heritages. As the say goes "Commercial Fishermen a Endagered Species"
