The Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission's Interstate Fisheries Management Program Policy Board directed the Summer Flounder, Scup, and Black Sea Bass Management Board (Board) to consider potential overages for all three species and take action prior to September 1. This directive was taken in response information presented to the Policy Board regarding available black sea bass preliminary recreational harvest estimates and projections indicating that harvest will likely result in significant quota overages. Board action could include emergency measures to prevent further overages in recreational fisheries for summer flounder, scup, and black sea bass. A press release will be issued following finalization of meeting arrangements.

It was part of the minutes of the summer meetings of the ASMFC. I probably got it from a press release, but I may have simply extrated it from the minutes. I may still have the source, but I may have dumped it. Either way it should be available on the ASMFC website. If I have a chance I'll go look for it.

Worse than that! We can expect complete SHUT-DOWN THIS YEAR. Possibly on all three(at least that's what I gather from the language).

Mike,

I checked ASMFC press releases and found nothing relevant. Your post says a press release will be issued once the meeting is scheduled.(?)

It's not on the website, but it is real. 70% of this year's quota landed through the first 3 waves of landings (through the end of June). Emergency closure for the rest of 2009 very real possibility.

They only have preliminary data for wave 3 (May/June). So all subsequent landings would be estimated.

I got the release, also, Phil. The source is on my laptop at home.

To the best of my knowledge, wave 1 and 2 data is pretty "good" at least in terms of being final, to their satisfaction, and wave 3 is preliminary. Add the 3 waves together (4 months of "final" data and 2 months of prelim data) and the rec. landings are at 70% of the rec. quota.
