The Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council’s Law Enforcement Committee, Tilefish Committee, and Highly Migratory Species Committee will hold a joint meeting on Thursday, September 20, 2018 from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. The meeting will be held via conference call.
During this meeting, the committees will discuss two important issues: 1) the sale of golden tilefish and tuna by recreational vessels that do not possess permits allowing for the sale of those species or possess Coast Guard vessel safety requirements for commercial vessels; 2) Responsibilities of for-hire captains regarding fishing regulation (e.g., minimum size limit, bag limit) on for hire-trips. The purpose of the conference call is to discuss these two issues and develop an agenda and set of questions to be discussed at a future workshop.
