public hearing Jan. 3 on proposed addendum to black sea bass plan

DOVER (Dec. 26, 2017) – DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife will host an Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission public hearing on the latest draft addendum to the Interstate Fishery Management Plan for Black Sea Bass at 6 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 3 in the DNREC Lewes Facility, 901 Pilottown Road, Lewes, DE 19958.

The draft addendum proposes alternative regional management approaches for the recreational fishery, including options for regional allocation of the recreational harvest limit based on historical harvest and exploitable biomass.

The draft addendum is available at www.asmfc.org. Public comment will be accepted until 5 p.m. Monday, Jan. 22, 2018 and should be forwarded to Caitlin Starks, Fishery Management Plan Coordinator, 1050 N.
