Managers under pressure to increase harvest of critical forage species
Posted on July 29, 2016

On Wednesday, August 3, the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) will face a test of its commitment to manage menhaden as a vital forage species when it decides to either increase commercial harvest or stay the stay the course and allow conservation measures to restore menhaden to its full ecological potential. Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) is urging Commissioners to avoid the impacts of “regulatory whiplash” and stay on the schedule previously established for the full restoration of menhaden to its ecological role throughout its range.

Next week the Atlantic Menhaden Management Board will set specifications for the 2017 fishery and provide further guidance to its Plan Development Team on Draft Amendment 3. These two issues are of the utmost importance to the Coastal Conservation Association. We urge you to keep your commitment to managing menhaden for predators, allow conservation to continue working, and avoid the impacts of regulatory whiplash. Be cautious and measured in your setting of the specifications and stay on the schedule previously established for the approval and implementation of Amendment 3.
