To Those for Whom Menhaden Matter:

On March 22nd the ASMFC Menhaden Management Board voted (15-1) to initiate Addendum V to the Interstate Fishery Management Plan for Atlantic Menhaden. The intent of the addendum is to improve stock productivity and increase abundance from current levels, using a new overfishing threshold of 15% MSP (maximum spawning potential).
