River Herring and Shad

Overview

The Council has instituted a river herring and shad (RH/S) cap for the mackerel fishery, which is tracked by GARFO.  The Council is also considering adding river herrings (blueback and alewife) and/or shads (American and hickory) as Council managed species.  The August and October 2016 briefing books will have relevant documents.  The ASMFC currently has primary management coordination responsibilities for RH/S, click here for details.
