Southern New England Monkfish Gillnet Exemption Area

Exempted fisheries allow vessels to fish for specific species without being subject to certain northeast (NE) multispecies regulations, including days-at-sea (DAS), provided the bycatch of regulated species is minimal. This is an exemption area for vessels in the monkfish fishery using gillnet gear in Southern New England (SNE).
