No this is real, you guys can joke around, but take 5 minutes to e-mail your congressman. Ken
Ken I realize how serious this is. Thank you for alerting us, the responsible people in this hobby are very concerned.

this is from MFK, courtesy of poster logan83:

"This is a list of all co-sponsors of HR 669. Check to see if your representitive is on the list. Either way contact your congressman and urge them to vote no on this bill. I work on the hill and know this works. Everyone needs to call, email, write etc...they will listen if we mobilize.

"Fashfarm is right, also contact the committee. The bill can die in committee if they let it.

"Please be sure to be polite and sound professional when contacting. "Crazies" do not get the time of day on the hill.

would this affect canada or this U.S. strictly?

Probably not canada. But you never know, the government might follow along again. I know if this thing does pass it won't go quietly.

well, this is a piece of US legislation, not international.... so the only effect i imagine it having on canadians is that you wouldn't be able to buy or sell fish from/to americans...
