New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Commissioner Basil Seggos announced today that the agency is holding a series of meetings across the State's Marine and Coastal District in July and August to gather feedback from key stakeholders about the State's current commercial fishing licensing system and ideas for reforms to modernize and improve the program.

The public meetings, led by the marine fisheries consultant, will offer the opportunity for commercial fishermen and stakeholders to ask questions and provide their insight on the current licensing system. Currently scheduled stakeholder meetings can be found on DEC's website.


For an updated list of meeting notices, including Montauk, visit DEC's website.

DEC will accept comments on the Marine Commercial Licensing System until September 15, 2018. Comments can be submitted by email to FW.Marine@dec.ny.gov with subject line "GLP Permits," or by mail to the contact listed above.

The meetings are accessible to people with language differences and/or disabilities. A person who needs an interpretive or disability-related accommodation or modification to participate in the meeting may make a request to the contact listed above
