Fishing for the Truth: How Biological and Fishery Data Inform the Management of Summer Flounder
April 25 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Summer flounder are an important target species for commercial and recreational fisheries in New Jersey and in the broader Mid-Atlantic and New England regions. Many different sources of fishery and survey data inform one of the most data-rich stock assessments in the Greater Atlantic region. This critical scientific information informs joint management by the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council and Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission, in cooperation with state marine fisheries
agencies from Massachusetts through North Carolina. Join fishery management specialist, Kiley Dancy, and fishery management plan coordinator, Dustin Leaning, to learn more about how summer flounder biological and assessment information are used in the management process, as well as to hear about some of the unique management challenges currently facing the summer flounder fisheries.
Presenters: Kiley Dancy (Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council) and Dustin C. Leaning (Atlantic State Marine Fisheries Commission)
