NOAA Hosting Meeting on Sea Turtles & TEDs for Skimmer Trawls

Posted by Mscfuwebs@gmail.com on March 17, 2016 at 7:15 PM

NOAA Fisheries is considering new regulations in the shrimp fishery of the southeastern United States based on information indicating sea turtles are vulnerable to capture by skimmer trawls and tow times may not be as effective in reducing bycatch related mortality as turtle excluder devices. The agency will host five public meetings around the region to discuss and receive input from fishermen and other constituents on alternatives to reduce sea turtle bycatch and mortality.

The Mississippi meeting hosted by NOAA will be held at:

Biloxi, MS

--

April 20, 2016, 5 p.m. -  7 p.m.,

Biloxi Visitor’s Center, 1050 Beach Boulevard,

Biloxi, MS 39530
