10/1/2015 7:43:04SARA WARDbws.sward@yahoo.comSHRIMP AMENDMENT 17A: The Ward family has been in the shrimping industry for over 60 years. Currently we own 5 shrimp vessels. We have our federal permits already, however, we believe that Alternative 1, allowing the moratorium to expire, would be the best way to go.Apalachicola, Florida 32320Other

10/2/2015 10:11:08Charles B Burnellburnelltrawlers@yahoo.comI have three boats with ROYAL RED PERMITS. Of the 3 boats only one boat has the fishing gear capability ($100,000) of fishing for ROYAL RED.The cost alone is LIMITED ENTRY
There should be no farther regulations imposed on this sector of the Industry

Thank You

10/6/2015 8:16:21Ernest H "Buddy "Treybig, Jr.oystersales@hotmail.com I've been in Texas shrimping industry for 40 years as a boat owner or captain, we've made it through the hard times, we don't need anymore boats or licenses, we've earned the right to have the moratorium kept in place and extended. I am building a bigger boat and had to pay 10,000 dollars for a federal permit, so you know I make my sole living as a commercial shrimper, there is enough competition out there already .Thank you for letting me comment on this matter, Buddy Treybig Matagorda, Texas, 77457 Commercial Fisher

10/6/2015 20:49:34Peter V Nguyencnguyen850@gmail.comWe should have an open moratorium for the federal shrimp permit in the Gulf of Mexico. As the owner of a vessel, I strongly believe that Alternate 1 is the best option.Commercial Fisher

10/7/2015 7:32:33Samuel Jackson Snodgrassneddyalamo@aol.com We feel there should be more permits available for shrimp vessels therefor we are in support of Alternative 1. We do not support permits permanently expiring. As it is right now we are not able to purchase a permit and if you can find one they are extremely expensive. Our industry can not grow without licenses being available. Thank you for your time and consideration to this issue.BrownsvilleCommercial Fisher

I had to pay for my permit upon purchasing my boat. Although I had no reasons in not wanting or keeping it is due to the shrimping done along the coast of where I work is profitable at times.

12/18/2015 11:02:12Tyler A. Treybig Tylertreybig@gmail.com My family has been in the shrimping industry for over 60 years, my dad's a shrimper and so am I. I'm for the moratorium and for extended it for as long as we can. Even with lower fuel prices and higher shrimp prices, there's always gonna be new laws and restrictions put on us like the turtle issues and the snapper issues, on top of that we don't need more boats. If you make your living shrimping and you want another boat, you can buy out another fisherman's license, there in the yellow pages all the time. With all the environmental issues we will face in the future, you can't count on shrimp catches to get better than they were years ago.

1/18/2016 7:59:22james zurbrickjim@jollyrogersii.comThe moratorium should be extended another 10 years, especially if the stakeholders want that. If the Red royal sprimp are over-fished than an endorsement is warranted with a landing criteria. steinhatchee fl 32359Private Recreational Angler, Charter/Headboat For-Hire, Commercial Fisher
