Delaware Requests Special Management Zone Designations for EEZ Reef Sites

In December, the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council (MAFMC) approved a list of alternatives for public hearings relative to the request by Delaware to have its five reef sites in the EEZ designated as Special Management Zones (SMZs) under provisions of Amendment 9 to the Summer flounder, Scup and Black Sea Bass FMP. 

MAFMC will host three public hearings (one each to be held in New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland) in January 2013 to receive public comment on the proposed alternatives.

Public comments received on the issue will be reviewed by the Council at its February 2013 meeting.
