Summary

We approved management measures for the 2020 summer flounder recreational fishery. The implementing regulations for this fishery require us to publish recreational measures for each fishing year. The intent of this action is to constrain recreational catch to the summer flounder recreational harvest limit and thereby, prevent overfishing on the summer flounder stock.
