SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The MAFMC's Summer Flounder, Scup, and Black Sea Bass Monitoring Committee (Committee) has initiated an evaluation of several current management measures for the summer flounder, scup, and black sea bass commercial fisheries (e.g., minimum commercial fish sizes, minimum mesh sizes, seasonal possession limits triggering the minimum mesh sizes, other gear restrictions, and exemption programs). The Committee will meet via webinar to review initial analyses evaluating the effectiveness of the current regulations, identify additional work to be completed, and potentially begin development of recommendations to the MAFMC.
