The Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council is collecting public comments and suggestions regarding current and future management of the recreational summer flounder fishery. Input provided through the scoping comment form will help inform the development of a management strategy evaluation, which will evaluate different management strategies designed to minimize discards in the recreational summer flounder fishery.
The Council is collecting this information as part of the continued progress and implementation of its Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management.
The Council encourages all stakeholders who have interest, knowledge, or experience related to the recreational summer flounder fishery to provide comments. The form should take 10-15 minutes to complete, and your answers are confidential. More information.
Provide comments on the MAFMC’s scoping comment form by Monday, January 25, 2021.
