We ask you to use up your share by Dec 31. This is because we used your membership dollars to catch seafood in that year and we can’t carry over a large inventory year to year. If you have credit leftover in your account at the end of the season, and you join again for the next season, small balances (up to around $50) will roll over to the next year. If you have not signed up in the next season, we will hold all remaining balances in your account until the end of the sign up window. After that time, we will donate any unspent shares to charity from members who have not returned.
