Management Council to Hold Scoping Hearings for Action on Unmanaged Forage Species
 
The Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council has scheduled a series of scoping hearings to gather public input for a proposed action to protect unmanaged forage species. The proposed action would consider a prohibition on the development of new, or expansion of existing, directed fisheries on unmanaged forage species in the Mid-Atlantic until adequate scientific information is available to promote ecosystem sustainability.
Additional information and updates about this action can be found in the scoping document and on the Unmanaged Forage Action page of the council’s website. http://www.mafmc.org/actions/unmanaged-forage
