Herring Stakeholders: Better catch info needed
PORTLAND- Few people attended the New England Fishery Management Council’s three hearings on Amendment 4 to the Herring Fishery Management Plan earlier this month.
But those few who did had plenty to say.
NEFMC also received a dozen letters and emails, some signed by multiple individuals. A4 is mainly an administrative action that will address the process for establishing annual catch limits and accountability measures.
Hearings to gather comments on A4 were held Jan. 6, 7, and 11 in Gloucester and Fairhaven, Mass., and in Portland.
