NOAA Fisheries Greater Atlantic Region Announces Release of Recreational Fisheries Plan

We are excited to announce NOAA Fisheries' Greater Atlantic Region Saltwater Recreational Fisheries Implementation Plan for 2016-2017. Please take a moment to read through the plan (pdf).

The plan outlines a set of shared priorities tied to concrete actions we will take over the next two years. The plan focuses attention where it will have the greatest impact - where you live and fish. 

The plan was developed with input from local leaders in the angling community, states and regional fishery management councils. It is a living document that will continue to be shaped by ongoing conversations and through current regulatory and scientific processes.

We would welcome the opportunity to talk with you about the regional plan and how best to implement the actions they contain.
