    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    The Summer Flounder, Scup, and Black Sea Bass Monitoring Committee and the Bluefish Monitoring Committee will meet to develop recommendations for 2020 recreational management measures (i.e., possession limits, fish size limits, and/or open and closed seasons) for summer flounder, scup, black sea bass, and bluefish. For summer flounder, the Monitoring Committee will consider the use of coastwide measures or conservation equivalency and associated management measures. For black sea bass, the Monitoring Committee will consider the use of federal waters measures or conservation equivalency and associated management measures. For scup and bluefish, the respective Monitoring Committees will consider federal waters management measures and may discuss approaches to state waters measures, which will likely be considered by the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission in early 2020. This will be an in-person meeting, but a listen-only webinar connection option will be available. Meeting materials will be posted to http://www.mafmc.org/​council-events/​2019/​sfsbsb-mc-nov-13-14.
