The Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council (Council) and the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) have scheduled several scoping hearings to gather public input on the range of issues and information to be considered in a new amendment to the Bluefish Fishery Management Plan. This amendment, the Bluefish Allocation Amendment will review and possibly revise the allocation of Atlantic bluefish between the commercial and recreational fisheries and the commercial allocations to the states.

Some of the topics the Council and Commission are interested in receiving comment on include the following:

  • Sector based bluefish allocations
  • Commercial allocations to the states
  • Transfer processes
  • Changes in the fishery
  • Changes in availability, effort, and marketability

A scoping hearing is scheduled in New York on June 26, 2018 at 6:30 PM.

It will be held at:
NYSDEC Division of Marine Resources
205 North Belle Mead Road, Suite 1.
East Setauket, New York 11733

Contact Maureen Davidson at 631-444-0483 if you have any questions.

* Special note for hunters: most hunting zones do not align with DEC's regional boundaries, so you won't find hunting seasons listed in the regional calendars. Use the statewide calendar instead.

This calendar provides a listing of all DEC-sponsored events that are open to the public. You can click on any event in the calendar to view additional details about the event. Note that the events at environmental education centers will only display in the region in which they are located, even though they serve residents from adjacent areas.
