  • Description:
    The Northeast Multispecies Fishery Management Plan (FMP) was implemented in 1986 to reduce fishing mortality of heavily fished groundfish stocks and to promote rebuilding to sustainable biomass levels. Thirteen species are managed through plan amendments and framework adjustments to the original plan, including: Atlantic cod, haddock, yellowtail flounder, American plaice, witch flounder (grey sole), winter flounder (black back), Acadian redfish, white hake, Pollock, windowpane flounder, ocean pout, Atlantic halibut, and the Atlantic wolffish. This bibliography focuses on winter flounder, and is intended as a primer and reference resource for staff of the National Marine Fisheries Service, Greater Atlantic Regional Fisheries office. It is organized into four sections: Biology (life history), Ecology (interaction with the environment), Fishery, and Management.
