Letter Rejecting Aquaculture Fishery Management Plan for the Gulf of Mexico

niaz policy letters, Publications

NAMA unites with over 100 conservation organizations, fishing groups, consumer organizations, seafood businesses, independent scientists, and other concerned parties in requesting that the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council reject the Aquaculture Fishery Management Plan which is slated for Final Action at their January 2009 Council meeting in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. While the Council, its Joint Management Committee, and the Interdisciplinary Planning Team (IPT) have worked diligently over the last year on this plan, it is still fundamentally flawed in its approach.
