Can we get this on FB and on the blog? There is an Opposition Form attached, very simple. It can be printed out and mailed to the address below or feel free to also add my address: DC Marine Services, 4733 Floramar Terrace, New Port Richey, FL 34652. I'm guessing that originals are best, but if you want to fax them to my office that should be ok too. The fax # is 727-938-6633 (Viking Fleet office).
There is a meeting in Sebastian, FL on Monday (3/29) opposing catch shares. Dave and I plan on being there. I'll send along more details as I find them out. Any questions, give Dave a call. 727-836-0050
