People always tell me they can’t get the time to attend any of these meetings. Now is your chance since you don’t have to actually be there. All of Delaware’s fishery meetings have been virtual, it is an easy way to see how everything works.
I strongly suggest you pay particular attention to the Council on Recreational Fishing Funding. These people are in charge of your fishery money from licenses matched with federal funds, nearly five million dollars. They only meet twice a year publicly. I have not had a great reception at these meetings, asking hard direct questions is not looked upon favorably. Follow the money.
