Did not know my e mail could melt, now I do. Here it is down and dirty. Many of us over the past year & half have beat the holy hell out of agency staff for not being forthright and transparent if you like. So The new R 6 Fish Program Manager Steve Theisfeld took a different track. He was rather frank on the status of negotiations with the QIN but stressed it is a work in progress. He asked that those present not blast things all over the web until the co managers have completed their negotiations.

Bottom line is oh so many have asked that the agency do just that, be transparent. So I ask all to respect that and let the co managers complete their process. Soon enough all can complain / endorse / scream your choice but at the moment all should respect the request and allow the co managers to finish their work.
Dazed and confused.............the fog is closing in
