Draft Amendment 1 incorporates information from the 2004 peer-reviewed
stock assessment as well as the required provisions of the Atlantic
Fisheries Cooperative Management Act. It proposes the establishment of
biological reference points (i.e., biomass and fishing mortality
and thresholds) to manage the croaker resource and includes options to
control fishing mortality regionally or on a coastwide basis. The
Amendment also identifies research priorities to bolster future stock
assessments and encourages the states and the federal government to
continue ongoing juvenile and adult surveys for data collection

The Board will meet in early November to review public comment on the
Amendment and consider its final approval. Fishermen and other
groups are encouraged to provide input on Draft Amendment 1 either by
attending public hearings or providing written comments. Copies of the
Draft Amendment May 23can be obtained via the Commission's website at
