bretttolley policy letters, Publications

NAMA urges New England Fishery Management Council (NEFMC) members to consider their already established goals and objectives that are currently not being reached. Goals include a diverse fleet, maintaining inshore and offshore fleets, and prohibiting any one person from acquiring an excessive share of the resource. NAMA presents the case for how these goals and objectives are not being met and urges the NEFMC to consider mechanisms and safeguards that can head our New England fisheries in the right direction.
