Greetings to all friends
.
of the chesapeake bay:
.
I have been reading about
.
the decline of the bay fisheries,
.
for long enough.
.
I want to start organizing
.
an online group or team of
.
likeminded citizens to do real work
.
to start solving the problems.Need help .
.
.
I am not satisfied to make posts,
.
which go nowhere ,
.
and do no real practical good.
.
===================
.
I am seeking active individuals to unite,
.
and start thinking about
.
how we can take steps to solve
.
the underlying problems. Need help .
.
.
Once we identify the problems
.
and some solutions, perhaps
.
we can take some action
.
to change some things .
.Need help .
.
=====
.
as I see it,
.
the bay fishery
.
is slowly declining.
.
The living things are
.
being netted up and sold.
.
The remainder of living things
.
are struggling to survive.
.
The oysters and millions of fish
.
are actually needed

to filter the water.
.
the crabs and many fish
.
are scavengers, and do
.
a form of " cleanup " on the bottom.
.
Poachers are taking
.
more than the law allows,
.
and the bay is suffering.
.
============
.
I am interested in joining hands,
.
to cooperate
.
to try to make positive progress.
.
Need help .
.
===============
.
I want to write a Quality Amicus Brief,
.
to help the Courts see how all this is related.
.
Need Help. I have never done this before...
.
maybe you have...
.
I envision this brief to be
.
actually filed in courts,
.
in specific poaching cases.
.
============
.
.
We will need some marine science experts
.
to testify in various courts. Need help ...
.
================
.
I am dreaming about trying to make
.
public Victim Impact Statements, in various Court poaching cases.
.
Who knows exactly how to do that? Need help...
.
Who has the courage to go and do the oration?
.
=============
.
.
our group might be like a
.
non profit corporation
.
it might be named
.
"Americans united to save
and protect the chesapeake bay"
.
========================
.
our group needs to do
.
the following
.
[ please add more ideas ]

==== short list of goals activities =======
.
we need to write
.
and think a lot . Need help .

.
.
we need to reach the public.
.
via all kinds of media.
.
I do not have any idea
.
how to do good free
. gurella advertizing.
.
Need help .
.
.
we need to write books, and
.
sponsor writers. I have
.
never written a book.
. Need help .
.
======
.
somehow the public should
.
become sensitive to
.the fact
.
that the bay is alive,
.
but it could die.
.
Need help .
.
.
===========
.
The goals that I outline
.
will take generations
. to reach.
.
It will take 60 years
.
of dedicated work,
.
to create
.
a reverence for our rivers
.
and streams.
.
I will be gone soon. Need help .
..
.
==============
.
we absolutely must
.
influence the legislatures
.
to tighten up the laws
.
regarding poaching.
.
Need help .
.
=====
.
we absolutely must influence the public
.
to take action regarding
.
this problem. Need help .
.
======
.
More later: I must get back to work...
.
------------
.
I think Pete Seeger was right:
.
This land is your land,
.
This water is your water,
.
These fish are your fish,
.
These fish are my fish.
.
This land was saved by you and me...

I am interested in starting
.
a grassroots group, which
.
will start to address
.
some of these issues...
.
Anyone interested can respond.
