Menhaden on the Web

Written by budiyanto on Tuesday, December 11, 2012 at 4:30 PM

After 13 public hearings and over 120,000 comments received, the Atlantic State Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) will consider final approval to Amendment 2 for the Interstate Fishery Management Plan for Atlantic menhaden this Friday, Dec. 14.
The meeting is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. at the Best Western Plus Hotel and Conference Center, Chesapeake Room, 5625 O’Donnell St. in Baltimore.

The public is invited to attend, but since the ASMFC solicited public comment on the amendment from Sept. 12 through Nov. 16, and conducted public meetings from Maine to North Carolina, the commission advises that there will be limited opportunity for public comment at this point. For those interested in observing the proceedings, the meeting will be broadcast via a webinar.

The webinar will be activated beginning 8:30 a.m and will end at approximately 5 p.m. The webinar will allow registrants to listen to deliberations and view presentations and motions as they occur. No comments or questions will be accepted.For online access to the meeting, please register by clicking on www3.goto 453104750. Once registered, you will receive an email confirmation with the information you will need to join the webinar.
Darn, Friday is the lab Christmas Holiday party, and I have a gig.
