  • Description:
    "This document contains the New England Fishery Management Council's recommendations for Framework Adjustment 2 to the Atlantic Herring Fishery Management Plan (FMP) as well as the Atlantic herring fishery specifications for the 2013-2015 fishing years, consistent with the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSA) and the Herring FMP approved by the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) on October 27, 1999. This document also contains information and supporting analyses required under other applicable law, including the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA), and Executive Order 12866. The actions proposed in this document also link to management objectives associated with minimizing bycatch in the herring fishery, the primary focus of Amendment 5 to the Herring FMP. If Amendment 5 is approved, the most notable changes (anticipated by the 2014 fishing year) would include a comprehensive catch monitoring program for the herring fishery, requirements for 100% observer coverage on Category A and B herring vessels, measures to address river herring bycatch, and measures to establish criteria for midwater trawl vessel access to groundfish year-round closed areas. The measures proposed in this Framework 2/specifications document that further support the Amendment 5 objectives include the proposed accountability measures (AMs) for the herring fishery and a 3% research-set aside for the 2013- 2015 fishing years, to support cooperative research focused on river herring bycatch avoidance and portside sampling"--Executive Summary (page i).
