Dear list-members
   If there is sufficient interest, we do have the capabilities to set
up a "Topic sub-list" that members could selectively subscribe or
unsubscribe to.   Long time members may recall that we had used that for
distribution of  the weekly CRS (Congressional Research Service) fish
news summaries  back in the days when that was considered a public document.
  Doing so would only be warranted  if there is sufficient interest in
filter messages that way and because this is an un-moderated list    it
will  require  posters such as David Shiffman to make use of keywords in
the subject line.
  This list does not have a high volume of messages, and deleting
message is easy enough to do,  but if this is something  you would like
to see, as opposed to having a prolonged discussion on the list itself
please direct your response to [log in to unmask]  ( or
by  replying  to this message) , and your list administrators (Chris
Harrod, myself and Steve Gutreuter )  will make a decision if it is
worth the trouble to  institute the changes.

this list itself has no affiliation with NOAA or any other institution)
