Default NYS DEC Herring Mtgs Postponed

Rec'd via E-mail from DEC:

Please Note: March meetings dates are rescheduled to mid and late
April.


TO: River herring fishers & interested individuals

In May 2009, the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission adopted
Amendment 2 to the Interstate Fishery Management Plan for Shad and River
herring. This amendment will guide future river herring management for
all Atlantic coastal states. New York, as a member of ASMFC, is required
under federal law to follow this new management plan.

For Amendment 2, the Shad and River Herring Management Board approved
the following as the management measure for both commercial and
recreational fisheries:

States with river herring (anadromous alewife and blueback herring)
stocks must close fisheries (commercial / recreational) except for those
systems with a sustainable fishery.

“Sustainable” is defined as “those that can demonstrate their
alewife or blueback herring stock(s) could support a commercial and / or
recreational fishery that will not diminish the potential future stock
reproduction or recruitment.” Simply, this means that adults and
production of young in a stock cannot be in decline. If you would like
more information, the entire amendment can be found at www.asmfc.org
under “managed species”, shad and river herring.

So what does Amendment 2 mean to you? There are two options for herring
fisheries in New York:

1. All river herring fisheries will be closed, OR
2. NY would have to show that any fishery, either recreational or
commercial, is “sustainable” based on available data.

Three public information meetings are scheduled: Meetings have been
rescheduled from March to mid-late April:

Mid-Hudson
15 April 2010, 7-10 pm

445 Delaware Ave

Long Island
29 April, 2010, 7-9 pm

Objectives of the meetings:
- Outline the requirements for NY in the recently adopted Atlantic
State Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) Amendment 2 (river herring) to
the Shad and river herring management plan.

Hudson Valley meetings:
- give a presentation on available river herring data for the Hudson
- open a discussion of how the herring fishery operates in the Hudson
and the need for changes to meet this new amendment

Long Island:

runs on Long Island and data needs.

LAZY FEDS need to do their job with regulating things OFFSHORE, or any small amount we conserve will just be scooped up by trawlers with no net gain.

The by-catch with ocean herring is huge and no one is doing their job stopping this. Much like they enforce or porous borders...........

AMERICAN FISHERMEN SHOULD DEMAND THE FEDS DO THEIR JOB!!!
