The public gets a chance to speak out loud about the proposed changes to the federal plan for managing Atlantic tuna fishing. The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) has scheduled a public webinar to give people the opportunity to comment live.

The seminar takes place on Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2014. NMFS announced the webinar and conference call on Thursday, Dec. 26. You can see the announcement and learn how to listen in or participate at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2013-12-26/html/2013-30643.htm.

The event takes place from 1 to 4 pm Eastern Standard Time.

NMFS announced in August that it was taking public comments on Amendment 7 to the 2006 Consolidated Highly Migratory Species Fishery Management Plan. The extended public comment period expires Jan. 10.

For details, see the stories linked to below.

The plan entails bluefin incidental catch (landings and dead discards) in the pelagic longline fishery,
reporting in all categories, and U.S. compliance with the recommended quota set by the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas.
