National Saltwater Recreational Fisheries Policy Implementation Plan Released
Tuesday, April 14, 2015

The National Saltwater Recreational Fisheries Policy Implementation Plan is available online at: http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/sfa/management/recreational/policy/implementation_plan_2015-2018.html

The implementation plan provides details on activities we'll be focusing on over the next 4 years to support our Agency's new recreational fishing policy and deliver quality science, service, and stewardship to the recreational community.

The National recreational Fishing Policy is available at http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/sfa/management/recreational/policy/index.html.

A few things you may find interesting include:
Commissioning an independent National Research Council review of the Marine Recreational Information Program (MRIP) to assess our progress and ensure we're following a process that is scientifically sound, statistically robust, collaborative, and transparent.
Expanding our capacity to engage the recreational community, including adding new full-time regional recreational fisheries coordinators.
Working with partners to advance electronic trip reporting for charter boats and head boats in the Gulf of Mexico and along the Atlantic coast.
Developing models to assess management decision impacts on angler participation.
We hope you will see elements that are important to you and reflect your interests. Please take a look and let us know what you think. We would welcome opportunities to work together. Send any thoughts or suggestions to Russ Dunn at russell.dunn@noaa.gov or contact your regional NOAA coordinator.
