POSTPONED: All three of the January 2019 recreational fishing workshops were postponed due to the partial federal government shutdown. Organizers intend to reschedule these workshops, most likely in October and/or November.

NOAA Fisheries’ Greater Atlantic Regional Fisheries Office (GARFO) is hosting three workshops in New England to collaboratively brainstorm short- and long-term approaches for possible future recreational fisheries management strategies. The findings of these workshops will be summarized and shared with the New England Fishery Management Council, including its Groundfish Committee and Recreational Advisory Panel. The workshops will be held:

  • January 8, 2019 in Portsmouth, NH;
  • January 10, 2019 in Narragansett, RI; and
  • January 12, 2019 in Plymouth, MA.

Recommendations resulting from these workshops will be considered within the current Council process for developing recreational management measures with input from all groundfish stakeholders and the public.
