Default Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council Survey

The Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council is accepting public input through various surveys. One is a general survey while there are also fishery-specific surveys for fluke, sea bass, bluefish, porgies, and other species that are managed by their agency. This is your chance to critique their agency and to make suggestions to improve our fisheries management. JCAA encourages individuals to take these surveys by going to http://www.mafmc.org/vision/. Below is and excerpt taken from their site.

The Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council is looking to you for help in developing a vision for the future of our fisheries. We are seeking your input through surveys and small group meetings throughout the region.

Over the last 35 years the Council has effectively rebuilt its managed fisheries. We are now determining how these fisheries should be managed in the future. Creating a ?blueprint? for Mid-Atlantic fisheries management will allow the Council to address long-term challenges such as maintaining productive marine ecosystems and the communities that rely on our region's fisheries. We want to hear about what is working effectively, what is concerning you, and how you want our fisheries to be managed in the future. We also hope you will tell us how we can make it easier for you to participate in the Council process.

How do existing regulations create economic challenges for fishermen?

What issues do you think threaten the sustainability of Mid-Atlantic fisheries?

How can the Council better manage recreational fishing to improve your experience?

Your participation will help the Council identify long-term goals, a vision, for Mid-Atlantic fisheries. Using your input, the Council will also develop a strategic plan and use that plan to achieve a vision for our fisheries.
