NOAA Announces Recovery of Spiny Dogfish Stock
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced on June 23, 2010 that the jointly managed (Mid-Atlantic and New England Councils) spiny dogfish stock has been rebuilt.
 

The consequence of this success is that the federal waters catch level for the dogfish fishery will increase from 12 million pounds to 15 million pounds this year.  This revised catch level is consistent with the level set by the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) for state waters.  Vessel trip limits will remain at 3,000 pounds for the fishing year from May 1, 2010 to April 30, 2011.
