Default Re: ASMFC Fall Meeting

I attended the meeting of the Striped Bass Management Board at the ASMFC Fall Meeting on Tuesday, and took the podium along with several others to request that the Board move forward with Addendum III, the next step being to send the draft Addendum out for public comment.

Unfortunately, the Board voted 9 to 6 to postpone this Addendum until after the 2013 stock assessment.

This essentially dooms the striped bass fishery to further decline, as by their own projection it will be "overfished" by 2017 if action is not immediately taken. You can thank Pat Augustine and his cronies for this.

I was especially disappointed to see Paul Diodati of the MA DMF also vote in favor of postponing this Addendum.
