Draft Omnibus Industry-Funded Monitoring Amendment and Draft Environmental Assessment Available for Public Comment

The Mid-Atlantic and New England Fishery Management Councils are developing an omnibus amendment to allow for industry-funded monitoring (IFM). This amendment includes alternatives that would modify all the fishery management plans managed by the Mid-Atlantic and New England Fishery Management Councils to allow for future industry-funded monitoring programs.  

Additionally, this amendment includes alternatives for industry-funded monitoring programs for the Atlantic herring and mackerel fisheries that would be implemented as part of this amendment.
