We need your Artwork, stories, postcards, letters and debating skills! The state of Florida is considering opening up limited sport fishing of the Goliath Grouper. The data doesn't support this choice yet and Erica Moulton has asked for our help - see her letter below. When she was speaking to Sylvia Earle about this, (You might have heard me speak about her 😁) Sylvia asked Erica if she knew of any student programs who could get involved with this. Erica naturally thought of us! Erica's Letter: Kelly! Great to chat with you. Protecting the Goliath Grouper, particularly for generations to come, is a vital thing - particularly where you are located in the Florida Keys. It would be great to have the kids and student divers of the Curious Minds Dive Foundation help us make our voices heard. Unfortunately, we do not have a lot of time to counter this proposal of allowing a harvest - as the next Commission meeting is May 12-13th. Cards, letters, email, art - whatever form of expression works - but everything can be sent to Jessica McCawley, Director, Marine Fisheries Management, 850-487-0554, email: Thanks so much for considering joining our efforts! And feel free to share with your other chapters in the US. Erica
