NOAA Fisheries released nine implementation plans that identify priority actions and milestones for Ecosystem Based Fisheries Management nationally and regionally for the next five years. Each plan identifies milestones for a specified geographic area. These milestones will help the agency meet sustainable fisheries goals under multiple mandates by more holistically considering social, economic and biological trade-offs across fisheries.
