Next Round of Right Whale Meetings On Hold - Revised Schedule Will be Sent When Available

Last week, DMR published a notice that the Lobster Zone Council meetings scheduled for the current week had been postponed. At this time, DMR is advising the industry that the entire schedule of meetings is currently on hold. The Commissioner regrets the delays but wants to ensure that we develop a proposal for submission to NMFS that reflects a thorough review of all data.

DMR will share an updated meeting schedule with industry when it becomes available. The Department remains committed to meeting with industry members before any proposal is formally submitted to NMFS.
