Atlantic dogfish catch limits in dispute

See also

Fisheries councils are disputing what the spiny dogfish trip limits should be. So the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council (MAFMC) announced on Friday, March 21 that it will meet to discuss the issue.

MAFMC recommends maintaining existing (4,000 lb) federal spiny dogfish trip limits for the 2014 and 2015 fishing years. But the New England Fishery Management Council wants to eliminate the trip limits. The two councils jointly manage the fishery.

So MAFMC has scheduled a webinar to hear perspectives on possible impacts of a limit. The webinar takes place on Tuesday, April 8 at 7 p.m. It will end by 9 p.m.

The public is welcome to listen in. Go to

While MAFMC may discuss other matters at the webinar, it will not take formal action on any other issue.
