Plan Components

The Conservation Plan components include the focused issues of the River Herring Technical Expert Working Group's (TEWG) subgroups and overarching committee, as well as other important considerations. It is important to note the TEWG considered information already identified by the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC), New England and Mid-Atlantic Fisheries Management Councils (NEFMC and MAFMC) respectively) when developing a list of research needs and conservation actions (Note: These lists were not generated by consensus and reflect individual expert opinion provided by TEWG members and the public).
