The MAFMC will convene a peer review panel consisting of members of the MAFMC's Scientific and Statistical Committee (SSC) and other outside experts, to review a summer flounder allocation model project. The MAFMC contracted the development of this project to inform consideration of potential changes to the allocation of annual catch and landings limits between the commercial and recreational sectors of the summer flounder fishery. This analysis aims to determine which allocations would maximize benefits to the commercial and recreational sectors. The results of this project and peer review are scheduled to be presented to the MAFMC in December 2016.
