ASMFC Meeting

Monday, November 13, 2017
1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
BWI Marriott Hotel
1743 W. Nursery Road
Linthicum, MD 21090

The Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) is gathering to review public comments and take a final vote on the future of the menhaden fishery. Menhaden are a crucial link in the Bay's ecosystem. But the Chesapeake Bay is not seeing the number of young menhaden it did historically, raising concerns for anyone who cares about the Bay's health.

Join whale watchers, charter boat captains, bait fisherman, sport fisherman, scientists, bird enthusiasts, students, conversation advocates, and Bay lovers for this historic vote!

Arrive early and join us in the "Bunker Room" for lunch, gear demos, giveaways, and more!
