Purpose and Reason:

Division proposal to:

  1. Amend the # of participating vessels from six (6) to twelve (12) (section 12.8(C)). 
  2. Amend the term of the program through 2022 (section 12.12)
  3. This amendment is proposed as an alternative to proposed adoption of new rule “Part 19 – Aggregate Landing Program for Summer Flounder and Black Sea Bass”.  If Part 19 is adopted, this rule would become obsolete and would be proposed for repeal at a later date. If this rule is maintained, Part 19 would not be considered for adoption at this time
  4. IMPORTANT!  The Division proposal represents proposed regulations based on simulation results. However, the Division is seeking comments on the proposed rule to inform the final decision making process.
