Northeast Multispeci​es Fishery Trip Limit Adjustment​s for the Common Pool Fishery

nmfs_logoToday, the no such entity, NOAA Fisheries, announced that is decreasing the possession limit for Southern New England/Mid-Atlantic winter flounder and Gulf of Maine haddock for Northeast multispecies common pool vessels for the remainder of the 2013 fishing year. We are taking this action because the common pool has caught 73 percent of its Southern New England/Mid-Atlantic winter flounder quota, and 96 percent of its Gulf of Maine haddock quota.  This action is intended to prevent the overharvest of the common pool’s allocation of Southern New England/Mid-Atlantic winter flounder and Gulf of Maine haddock for the 2013 fishing year. 00:16
