NMFS Preparing Statement for Shark Management
Wednesday, April 24, 2013

NMFS announces its intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement and associated rulemaking for dusky shark management measures. Through the rulemaking process, NMFS would amend the 2006 Consolidated HMS FMP and examine management alternatives available to rebuild dusky sharks and end overfishing. The FMP amendment for dusky sharks will be called "Amendment 5b." For more information, please see the attached documents or go to the HMS Management Division website at: http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/sfa/hms/breakingnews/index.htm
