What makes the MAFMC policy better than the other

alphabet agencies that have been running stocks into

the ground.?

Right now, I don't believe that they manage a single stock that is either overfished or subject to overfishing (not sure about blueline tilefish, which they just recently took on; that may be an exception).  But as Mijke said, they have a Scientific and Statistical Committee that developed a very comprehensive risk policy, that seems to work pretty well.  If anything, they catch some criticism for a policy that is too conservative

As with most of the phrases involved in fishery

management, I don't no if a" well defined risk policy"

is good for fish populations or not. Probably not.

 

The Mid-Atlantic's risk policy is a good thing for the fish.  It provides a systematic approach to addressing scientific uncertainty, and calls for more conservative harvest limits as the level of uncertainty increases.

If I understand correctly, this group isn't involved in bass,

bluefish ,weakfish management? Id like to try the

"too conservative" approach on these species for a while.

Thanks for taking the time to translate info into

laymen terms and posting all the fishery management

updates. It needs to be dumbed down for me to a certain

extent or I start to glaze over.

They do IIRC manage bluefish, Bass (I assume you mean striped bass) is managed by the ASMFC. I'm not sure who manages weakfish. Charles?

They do manage bluefish, but not bass or weakfish
