If you are interested in our flounder fishery I would suggest you try and make one of the listed meetings. This is one of the most important issues we now face. This issue will have an impact on flounder for generations to come. Listen to the science and biology TPWD will present and make your comments from facts not emotion. PLEASE![color=black][/color]
