It's no secret that commercial fishermen are incredibly smart. Aside from knowing how and where to fish, the proper bait and all the other endless details it takes to be successful, they have know an infinite amount of ever-changing regulations, all of them written in lawyer-speak.

So who better to comment on commercial fisheries than the ones who are out there doing it? NOBODY. That's why we invite ALL FISHERMEN to write us at fishery@aboutguide.com about whatever is on your mind. If you want to make a cogent argument for or against a regulation, inform others of a rally or share a bit of fishing news, go for it. One sentence, one paragraph or several pages, it really doesn't matter. If it's intelligent, we'll print it.

To those who make their living on the open seas, providing for the seafood industry, this is your site. We look forward to your input. In fact, we're counting on it. Nobody is more qualified to comment on fishing regulations than those impacted by them. Better yet, there are no people more qualified to be called stewards of the ocean than the brave fishermen who are out there day after day, making their living. For you, we have nothing but respect.

Feel free to comment or make suggestions. Send your e-mails to fishery@aboutguide.com.
