Upcoming Meetings

Striped Bass Fishery Management Plan Meeting

DEC and the Atlantic State Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) is seeking public comment on the Draft Addendum II to Amendment 6 to the Atlantic Striped Bass Interstate Fisheries Management Plan.

Public Comment Process and Proposed Timeline

In February 2010, the Atlantic Striped Bass Management Board approved a motion to initiate the development of an addendum to the Interstate Fishery Management Plan for Atlantic Striped Bass to consider options for increasing the coastal commercial quota. In May 2010, the Management Board approved a motion to include an option to revise the definition of striped bass recruitment failure based on Technical Committee advice. This draft addendum presents background on the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission's management of striped bass, the addendum process and timeline, a statement of the problem, and options of striped bass management for public consideration and comment.

The public is encouraged to submit comments regarding this document at any time during the addendum process. The final date comments will be accepted is October 1, 2010. Comments may be submitted by mail, email, or fax. If you have any questions or would like to submit comment, please use the contact information below.
