Attachment below is description of the hearing
For the full document open link at
www.asmfc.org under "breaking news"

The closure of river herring fisheries in some Atlantic coastal states (Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Virginia and North Carolina) and observed declines in river herring abundance have led to questions about the adequacy of current management of the species to promote healthy fish stocks.
Amendment 1 to the Fisheries Management Plan states in its objectives that existing regulations for river herring fisheries "should keep fishing mortality sufficiently low to ensure survival and enhancement of depressed stocks and the maintenance of stabilized stocks" (ASMFC 1999); however, questions regarding mortality levels and whether they are low enough to prevent further stock declines have arisen. The Commission and the public have also expressed concern over the lack of monitoring of river herring populations, fisheries and bycatch. This document has been developed to address these questions and concerns.
1. River herring population monitoring requirements (See Draft Amendment 2 sections 3.1 and 3.2)
2. Bycatch monitoring requirements (See Draft Amendment 2 Section 3.3);
3. Commercial fisheries management measures (See Draft Amendment 2 Section 4.1); and
4. Recreational fisheries management measures (See Draft Amendment 2 Section 4.2)
