NOAA Asks Anglers For Fisheries Input - The Fisherman

NOAA Asks Anglers For Fisheries Input

NOAA Fisheries is asking the recreational fishing community for their input at three webinars to update the 2015 National Saltwater Recreational Fisheries Policy. With perspectives shared during the 2022 National Saltwater Recreational Fisheries Summit, NOAA Fisheries requests angler input on revising the Policy.

The first meeting was held August 31, but there are two more for anglers looking to have their voices heard; September 22 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. (EST); and November 16 from 6 to 7 p.m. (EST). Anglers should only feel the need to attend one meeting and should only express their opinions once to avoid confusion. To register for a webinar or provide your public comment via and online form, visit www.fisheries.noaa.gov/event/public-presentations-recreational-fisheries-policy-update.

During the webinars, NOAA Fisheries will provide a concise overview and history of the Policy, answer questions, and accept comments and suggested improvements. The public comment period and electronic comment portal will remain open through December 31, 2022.
