Atlantic Scallop Fishermen: Default Measures in Effect March 1

February 15, 2017
NOAA Fisheries reminds Atlantic Sea Scallop fishermen in our region that the default measures approved for 2017 will go into effect on March 1, 2017

Read our permit holder bulletin online to find out more about the default measures.

The 2017 measures (Framework 28) that the New England Fishery Management Council voted on in November 2016 have not yet been published.

When the new rules are not published prior to the beginning of the new fishing year, default measures go into effect.

Please be sure to consider the upcoming adjustments as you plan your fishing activity.
