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.

GLOUCESTER DAILY TIMES: Where's the fisherman on review panel for new cod data?

August 18, 2014 -- It would be nice to think that, in the wake of an “unscheduled” stock assessment that conspicuously left out any input from fishermen or others inherently familiar with the industry, the planned “peer review” of the findings by NOAA’s NFSC would include someone who represents the fishermen’s interests before there is any move to carry out even more dire limit cuts for Gulf of Maine cod.
