The Bluefish Advisory Panel will meet via webinar on Monday, August 26, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Webinar connection information will be posted on this page prior to the meeting.
The purpose of the meeting is to develop the 2018 Fishery Performance Reports (FPR; produced by the Advisory Panel Members). The intent of this report is to facilitate a venue for structured input from the Advisory Panel members for the bluefish specifications processes, including recommendations by the Council and its Scientific and Statistical Committee (SSC). In addition to developing the FPR, the AP will also discuss the current status of the Bluefish Amendment. Specifically, the sector based allocations, commercial allocations to the states, the transfer processes, and the FMP goals and objectives.
