Amendment 2 Workshops

 

Based on feedback from the public and MFC, the N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries is examining management strategies to further reduce bycatch of non-target species in the shrimp trawl fishery and potential changes to existing shrimp management strategies that were adopted in the 2006 FMP, 2015 Amendment 1, and 2018 Revision to Amendment 1.

The N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries will hold Shrimp Fishery Management Plan Advisory Committee workshops over several days to review draft Amendment 2 to the plan. The purpose of the workshops is to further develop draft Amendment 2.

Workshop dates are scheduled for:

Day 1:   March 2    6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Day 2:   March 4    3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Day 3:   March 9    3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Day 4:   March 10  3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Day 5:   March 11  3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Day 6:   March 15  5 p.m. to 8 p.m. 

While the workshops are open to the public to observe, no public comment will be accepted.

The advisory committee assists the division by providing input for consideration to refine management options in draft Amendment 2. Workshop-style meetings allow scientists, managers, and stakeholders to address questions, comments, and concerns more effectively and in a less formal setting. Based on the outcome of the workshops, the division will present a revised draft of Amendment 2 to the Marine Fisheries Commission later in 2021. Additional public review and comment on the draft plan will then be solicited and is critical input to completing the final plan.
