Fishermen Say Data Doesn’t Represent Stock

Fishermen believe that they observe large gaps in the biological data that is to be used in updated Atlantic King Mackerel stock assessment. The new stock assessment does not line up with what we are observing, states Kelly Schoolcraft a fisherman from North Carolina. The new stock assessment is scheduled for review and completion later this year. The Science and Statistics Committee plans to provide the South Atlantic council with a new total allowable catch for the fishery at the December meeting.
