The Council 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 meeting will be held on Friday, November 18, 2016 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the DoubleTree by Hilton BWI Airport (890 Elkridge Landing Rd, Linthicum Heights, MD 21090; telephone: (410) 859-8400.)
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.
These meetings are physically accessible to people with disabilities. Requests for sign language interpretation or other auxiliary aid should be directed to M. Jan Saunders, (302) 526-5251, at least 5 days prior to the meeting date.
