Notice to Atlantic Herring Fishery: Atlantic Sea Herring Management Plan Area 1A, Effective October 1, 2012
ASMFC Atlantic Herring Section members from the States of Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts discussed 2012 Area 1A effort controls at a meeting in Warwick, RI on September 21, 2012. The states were unable to agree upon the number of landing days per week beginning October 1, 2012. As a result, the default will allow for seven landings days per week for the rest of the calendar year OR until changed by an additional notice.
Effective October 1, 2012 at 00:01 until further notice, it is lawful to land Atlantic herring in the State of Maine taken from ASMFC Management Area 1A all seven days a week unless changed by a further notice.
For more details, please contact your local Marine Patrol Division Headquarters (Div I 633-9595, Div II 667-3373) or your local marine patrol officer.
