Bunker Hearings in Bridgeport, New Haven, and Old Lyme

”The DEEP Marine Fisheries Division is hosting Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission Public Hearings on Atlantic Menhaden management. These hearings have been scheduled to take place in Bridgeport, New Haven and Old Lyme in an effort to provide convenient locations for fishermen to attend.

"The Draft Addendum proposes establishing a new interim fishing mortality threshold and target (based on maximum spawning potential or MSP) with the goal of increasing abundance, spawning stock biomass, and menhaden availability as a forage species.”
