Proposed Rule; 2017 and 2018 Summer Flounder Specifications

Proposed Rule; Request for Comments; Summer Flounder Fishery; 2017 and 2018 Summer Flounder Specifications – NMFS proposes revised summer flounder specifications for the 2017 and 2018 fishing years. Updated scientific information regarding the status of the summer flounder stock indicates that these proposed catch limits are necessary to constrain summer flounder harvest within scientifically sound recommendations to prevent overfishing.
