Ammendment 6 Issue # 1
I'm not confident of my understanding of "fmsy", I believe it is fishing at maximum sustainable yeild. Can someone please straighten me out ?
Anyway, if it does mean maximum sustainable yeild I think we are headed for trouble if that is a target. Perhaps it should be lower than fmsy.
I feel the fishing mortality should be balanced on all age groups.
I believe the states should have flexibility as long as they are in compliance with the FMP.
I believe in the rest of issue one as they are mostly ideals to fostering a well managed, quality, long term fishery.
