Scoping Webinars for Adding Bullet and Frigate Mackerel as Ecosystem Components in the Dolphin Wahoo Fishery Management Plan

The South Atlantic Fishery Management Council’s Dolphin Wahoo Fishery Management Plan (FMP) extends along the entire East Coast and includes federal waters off New England.

The Council is considering adding bullet mackerel and frigate mackerel to the FMP as “ecosystem component species” given their importance as prey for both dolphin and wahoo. These prey species currently are unregulated.

WEBINARS: The Council has scheduled two webinars to gather public input on this issue – one for May 7, 2019 and another for May 9, 2019. Both begin at 6 p.m. and registration is required:

PUBLIC COMMENT: The online public comment form will be open from noon on April 23, 2019 to 5 p.m. on May 16, 2019.
