The GNSTA executive would like to remind all GNS tuna license holders that ONLY members will be entered into the draw for the Mexican quota tags (28). Please fill out the form and send into the province with payment before September 01, 2018.

There is now less than 3 weeks left for your members to submit their FHOSA forms and payments, before the September 1st deadline. Reminders were mailed out a few weeks ago but there are still approximately 1/3 not paid. Please encourage your members to pay ASAP to avoid penalties. The money they owe is owed to you!
