     On December 17th there will be a special meeting with the newly appointed DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos.  Mr. Seggos will be coming down from Albany to Long Island to meet with stakeholders and DEC staff  to discuss marine resources.  This meeting is by invitation only, however public input is important.  I will be attending this meeting and the NYSF is asking our members, as well as anyone else who has an interest in our marine district, to send us their thoughts, concerns, and/or suggestions regarding such issues like data collection, enforcement, access, habitat, and any programs that would improve marine resources.  Many DEC staff as well as many stakeholders representing all areas of our marine district will be on hand at this meeting to address these issues.  The DEC is looking to formulate a few top priority issues to be accomplished in 2016.  This meeting is a great opportunity to have our thoughts heard.  You may send your comments on this to me directly to;

Thank you,

Joe Paradiso- President NYSF
