Atlantic Herring Management Board Meeting

Date: August 14, 2020

Time: 8:30 - 10:00 am

Location:

Town: Webinar/Conference Call

The Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission's Atlantic Herring Management Board members from Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts set effort control measures for the Area 1A fishery via Days Out webinars.

The previously scheduled Days Out call on August 7, 2020 at 8:30 AM has been cancelled. Given the current rate of landings in the Area 1A fishery, and that the weekly landings limit has not been fully harvested by all vessels, the states have decided a Days Out call is not warranted at this time.

Board members from Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts are scheduled to reconvene via conference call to review fishing effort on Friday, August 14 at 8:30 - 10:00 am. For more information, visit http://www.asmfc.org/files/Meetings/AtlHerringDaysOutMtgNotice_Aug2020.pdf .
