DAM IS EXTENDED THROUGH January 1, 2004
 

This message is to provide you with advance notice that NMFS will be extending the current DAM zone and its associated restrictions for lobster trap/pot and anchored gillnet gear for 15 days.

On December 4, 2003, 5 North Atlantic right whales were sighted in the current Dynamic Area Management (DAM) zone in a density that continues to meet the DAM trigger. Thus, NMFS will be taking action under the DAM program to provide protection for this aggregation of right whales by extending the current DAM zone and restrictions.
