We won the battle, but the war goes on. They will try again so get ready to protest.

The way I read it, it has neither been approved or nixed, it just hasn't been signed off on by NMFS. And if it is approved by NMFS, it takes 30 days to take effect.

No changes this year. It was voted on today at 4:30. Everything is the same as last year. Be ready to fight again next year, I'm sure they'll try again.
