NMFS Online Public Hearing on Proposed Whale Rules (Mass Outer Cape & NH- LMA1) @ ONLINE
Feb 17 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

From the NMFS Events page:

The Greater Atlantic Regional Fisheries Office is holding public hearings and requesting comments on the proposed rule to reduce entanglement in trap and pot fisheries for right, humpback, and finback whales.

We are proposing to amend the regulations implementing the Atlantic Large Whale Take Reduction Plan to reduce the incidental mortality and serious injury to North Atlantic right whales (Eubalaena glacialis), fin whales (Balaenoptera physalus), and humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) in northeast commercial lobster and crab trap/pot fisheries to meet the goals of the Marine Mammal Protection Act and the Endangered Species Act.

We are holding public hearings to give the public an opportunity to comment on the proposed rule. This session will be focused on the proposed requirements for Massachusetts (Outer Cape and LMA1) and New Hampshire (LMA1) though all may attend. If you are unable to attend you may access a pre-recorded version of the slides to learn more about the rule.
