I joined this forum to let fellow divers know what the commercial lobster interest and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission are trying to do about Recreational Crawfish Diving in Florida. I don't know if this is considered political or not? A spiny lobster advisory board has been formed that is composed of 5 commercial trappers, 2 wholesale dealers, 3 commercial divers and 3 recreational divers as you can see this is heavily weighted in favor of commercial interest, 10 to 3 is not odds in our favor. In the past few years every new restriction has applied to recreational divers. We are the majority but they seem to speak with a louder voice. We need help to stop this practice. You can all help by writing to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission 620 South Meridian Street mailbox 4B2 Tallahassee,Florida 32399-1600 and let them know we want this to stop. If you want more information please respond to this letter. Even if you have never dove in Florida you may come here some day to enjoy this exciting and tasty experience.
