We persevere.

Thank you for all your support in bringing together
S.O.EA. and the Shareholders’ Alliance.

Our primary purpose is to raise money for litigation to protect commercial fishing quotas. In the process of doing this, you are also entrusted with the responsibility of outreach and education: to make sure that everyone who is impacted by this “reallocation-by-recalibration” understands what happened and how the seafood industry in the Gulf of Mexico (and throughout the country) is coming together to fight it. Whether it is an owner, captain, or deckhand; from the dock workers to the fish houses and processors; restaurants, wholesale and retail markets, even the consumers themselves — everyone should be aware of this battle to reduce public and consumer access and have the opportunity to support it.

To that end, the primary roles and responsibilities of this is to:

  • Raise money.
  • Maximize industry and other participation in fundraising.
  • Foster positive communication to the seafood industry and its allies.
  • Demonstrate leadership and integrity and promote collaboration and unity with the seafood industry.

We are requesting the following entities to support this battle:

  • Fish Dealers: Small $2,500.00,
  • Restaurants: Small $500.00,
  • Longline Permit Holders: $1,000.00
  • Vertical Line Fishermen: $500.00
  • Shareholders: Red Grouper Large $5,000.00 Allocation $.10/LB
  • Seafood Consumer: $25.00
  • Captains- $100.00
  • Deckhands- $50.00
