I have been receiving various emails, Facebook messages, etc. regarding the Florida Lemon Shark petition...please see below:


"For those of you who are not aware, the situation with lemon sharks is very critical and time sensitive.  Please sign this petition -- it takes two seconds!  These animals are in real danger of getting wiped out very quickly.  Fishing regulations have changed and lemon sharks will now be targeted.  And they can't handle the fishing pressure.

And if you're in Florida, please, please come to one of the FWC Public Lemon Shark Workshops.  There will be a lot of interesting shark people and divers there, so besides doing something really good, it will be fun!  


Oct. 19th - Fort Myers, FL - 6pm - 8pm - Joseph P. D'Alessandro Office Complex, 2295 Victoria Ave.
Oct. 20th - Dania Beach, FL - 6pm -8pm - IGFA Fishing Hall of Fame and Museum, 300 Gulf Stream Way."


I will go to the Oct. 20th meeting, hope to see some of you there.

This sounds great. The lemon shark is in grave danger and needs to be protected.
