The Council will host a public information webinar on Tuesday, September 22, 2015 at 6 p.m. to gather public perspectives on spiny dogfish management. The results of this meeting will be summarized for the Council when it meets in October 2015 to set spiny dogfish specifications and associated management measures. A summary of current spiny dogfish management is available here.
Earlier on the same day, the Council's Spiny Dogfish Monitoring Committee will meet to develop spiny dogfish management measure recommendations for 2016-2018 based on the Acceptable Biological Catch (ABC) recommendations of the Council’s Scientific and Statistical Committee (SSC). This memo summarizes the ABCs recommended by the SSC as well as other potential management measures: http://www.mafmc.org/s/dogfish-specs-SSC-MC_2015-memo-ou5h.pdf.
