Based on our current fishery management process, the best way to express your views, concerns, and issues to agency folks is early in the process. In fact, under the NEPA process, agencies are required to hold public meeting that often called "scoping meeting." Scoping meetings is where the agency listens and often interacts with researchers. The other avenue to express your views, concerns, and issues is through the rulemaking process. Agency staff are required to respond to your comments. I can tell you from experience, agency staff do read and group all responses. I once read and grouped about 1200 public comments. Most of the comments were we hate your organization and don't agree with your approach; however, some comments were very technical; we actually modifed some language in the final rule because the comment was backed up with evidence.
