The AP will also receive updates on the Summer Flounder Commercial Issues Amendment and a framework/addendum which will consider conservation equivalency for black sea Start Printed Page 26657bass, conservation equivalency rollover for summer flounder, Block Island Sound transit provisions, and slot limits in the recreational fisheries for all three species.
