This action approves and implements the New England Fishery Management Council’s Industry-Funded Monitoring Omnibus Amendment. The New England Council is considering ways to increase monitoring in certain fisheries to assess the amount and type of catch and reduce uncertainty around catch estimates. This amendment implements a process to standardize future industry-funded monitoring programs in New England Council fishery management plans and industry-funded monitoring in the Atlantic herring fishery. This action will ensure consistency in industry-funded monitoring programs across fisheries and increase monitoring in the Atlantic herring fishery.
