You can still write in and let the people at NMFS know how you feel. Whether from a coastal state or not, this affects you. I cannot remember if I have posted a letter and contact info on this thread, but if not, in the Tuna/Offshore section, in the thread "Herring Meeting results, future" you will find a sample letter and all the info you need to send it in.
Just a reminder, though, tomorrow (monday) is the end of the comment period and so you only have until the end of the business day to get something in...You can use the sample I provided or write your own.
But again, whether you are from a coastal state or not, this problem affects you if you care about the ocean.
Follow that Dart!
