Comments submitted during public meetings are recorded, and written comments are displayed in full on the Council website. All comments are summarized and presented to the Council before fishery management decisions are made.

Public Hearings

 

Options and alternatives that can potentially solve a fishery issue have been developed along with biological, social, and economic analysis.  Help us identify the potential impacts of the proposed alternatives to guide the Council’s decision making process.
