The Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council is seeking public input for the development of a fishery management plan (FMP) for blueline tilefish and/or other deepwater species, or adding blueline tilefish to the existing golden tilefish FMP. This potential action will likely focus on the management of blueline tilefish off the Mid-Atlantic, and follows a Council request to the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) for emergency limits on blueline tilefish landings from waters off the Mid-Atlantic (i.e. north of North Carolina).
