Public Meeting on Summer Flounder, Black Sea Bass & Scup Oct. 26
October 21, 2004
The Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection?s Division of Fish and Wildlife will host a public meeting regarding proposed modifications to the ASMFC?s Summer Flounder, Scup and Black Sea Bass Fishery Management Plan.

The meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 26, at the Division?s Nacote Creek Law Enforcement Office, Route 9, Mile Post 51 in Port Republic, Atlantic County. Similar meetings are scheduled for Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, North Carolina, Rhode Island and Virginia.

Draft Addendum XV proposes to establish an allocation program for the increase of approximately 1.3 million pounds in the 2005 commercial summer flounder fishery.

Draft Addendum XVI presents options to address the impacts of delayed implementation of fishery management measures for summer flounder, scup and black sea bass. The addendum presents a suite of management options, including commercial and recreational measures and notification periods for the ASMFC and the states. These options aim to discourage delayed state implementation by requiring ?pay back? of the benefits that a state gained as a result of late compliance with an interstate fishery management plan.

Also slated for discussion is the decision to initiate development of Amendment 14 that will comprehensively address all aspects of the summer flounder fishery, including the issue of allocation between the commercial and recreational sectors. Anglers should note that regarding allocation, the Summer Flounder, Scup and Black Sea Bass Board along with the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council will recommend to the National Marine Fisheries Service that it deny United Boatmen?s and Recreational Fishing Alliance?s petition for 50-percent share of the Total Allowable Landings of summer flounder for the recreational sector.

A complete copy of the proposals can be obtained via the ASMFC?s website at www.asmfc.org under Breaking News or by calling 202-289-6400. Written comments will be accepted until November 4, 2004 and should be addressed to Toni Kerns, FMP Coordinator, 1444 Eye Street, NW, Sixth Floor, Washington, DC 20005; (202) 289-6051 (fax); or [email protected] (subject line: Addendum XV or Addendum XVI).

Rules changes proposed tonight at public meeting

Published in the Asbury Park Press 10/26/04
By:John Geiser


Proposed changes in the rules for fluke, porgies and sea bass will be discussed with the public at a meeting hosted by the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission and the state Division of Fish and Wildlife today.
The meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the division's Nacote Creek law enforcement office, Route 9, Port Republic, Galloway.

One of the proposed changes is Draft Addendum XV to the fluke management plan that would establish an allocation program for the increase of about 1.3 million pounds in the 2005 commercial fluke fishery.

Draft Addendum XVI is designed to address the impacts of delayed implementation of fishery management measures for fluke, porgies and sea bass. This became a matter of real concern to some in management after New York and New Jersey had problems with fluke and striped bass rules, respectively, this year.

The addendum includes several management options including commercial and recreational measures and notification periods for the ASMFC and the states.

The options are aimed at discouraging delayed state implementation by requiring "pay back" of the benefits that a state gained as a result of late compliance with an interstate fishery management plan.

Also to be discussed is the decision to develop Amendment XIV that will comprehensively address all aspects of the fluke fishery, including the issue of allocation between the commercial and recreational sectors.

The division reminded that the ASMFC's Summer Flounder, Scup and Black Sea Bass Board, along with the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council, will recommend to the National Marine Fisheries Service that it deny the petition of the United Boatmen and the Recreational Fishing Alliance for a 50-50 share of the total allowable landings of fluke between the commercial and recreational sectors.

The landings are currently split 60 percent commercial, 40 percent recreational.
