A reminder from NOAA Fisheries of two upcoming public discussion opportunities (virtual) to discuss and provide comments on updating the National Saltwater Recreational Fisheries Policy.
The National Saltwater Recreational Fisheries Policy is essential to shaping NOAA Fisheries’ approach to recreational anglers and their fisheries. It serves as a platform to help the public understand NOAA Fisheries’ perspective and approaches to recreational fisheries issues. Its goals and principles help guide Agency deliberations with regard to supporting and maintaining high quality sustainable saltwater recreational fisheries. NOAA recognizes the need for the Policy to adapt with a changing climate and the evolving needs of recreational fisheries and anglers to remain relevant.
During the virtual discussions, NOAA Fisheries will provide a concise overview of the Policy, answer questions, and accept comments and suggested improvements.
For more information about the policy, our work to update it, and to provide your comments outside of the webinars, please follow this link. The public comment period and electronic comment portal will remain open through December 31, 2022.
