The New York State Departments of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and Health (DOH) will hold a public availability session on February 27, 2020 to discuss the ongoing operations of the Dunn Mine and C&D (construction and demolition) Debris Disposal Facility on Partition Street Extension. At the availability session, individual stations on various aspects of DEC’s roles in the oversight and monitoring of the Dunn facility will be staffed by experts from DEC and DOH to provide opportunities for interested residents and community members to have specific questions answered. Community members can arrive at any time throughout the evening.

DEC and DOH representatives will be available to answer questions. We encourage community members to attend at their convenience.

The Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council (MAFMC) and Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) are developing an amendment to the fishery management plan to potentially revise the commercial and recreational sector allocations in the summer flounder (fluke), scup (porgy), and black sea bass fisheries. The ASMFC and MAFMC are also seeking to possibly revise the allocation of Atlantic bluefish between the commercial and recreational fisheries and the commercial allocations to the states and develop a rebuild plan for the overfished bluefish stock.

Public hearings for these actions are scheduled on Thursday, February 27, 2020 at
Stony Brook University, School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (SoMAS)
Endeavor Hall, Room 120
Stony Brook, New York 11794

Please note that this amendment will not address recreational bag, size, or season limits for any species.

7:30 p.m. - 9 p.m. - Bluefish Allocation and Rebuilding Amendment
Please note that this amendment will not address recreational bluefish management measures, including the three-fish private/shore bag limit and five-fish for-hire bag limit recommended for 2020.
