Virginia Withdraws Appeal to Amendment 3 For Menhaden
Just announced by the ASMFC, this is good news for the menhaden populations. When We contacted theASMFCas to why they withdrew there wasn’t a reason submitted with the withdraw.
ASMFC …. “This is a schedule change notice for the ASMFC’s meeting on February 8, 2018. The Commonwealth of Virginia has withdrawn its appeal of Amendment 3 to the Atlantic Menhaden Fishery Management Plan, therefore there will no longer be a discussion of the appeal at the Policy Board Meeting and there will not be an Atlantic Menhaden Board Meeting. The Summer Flounder, Scup, and Black Sea Bass Board will start at 1:30 pm.”
