Atlantic Menhaden Need Your Support-Let The Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission Hear From You
In August, the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) will consider adopting potentially game-changing management targets for Atlantic menhaden that better account for their important role in the ecosystem.  These ecosystem reference points (ERPs) will help managers determine how much menhaden to leave in the water to feed predators such as striped bass, bluefish, spanish/king mackerel, cobia, tarpon and many other recreationally important species. 

As anglers, we have long known the importance of menhaden as a critical forage base for a healthy functioning ecosystem. Tell ASMFC that you support the adoption of ERPs to account for menhaden’s importance to the ecosystem.  Moving forward with ERPs for menhaden will support recreational fisheries and coastal economies across the entire Atlantic seaboard!
