Since the inception of the AP in 1998, NMFS has consulted with and considered the comments and views of AP members when preparing and implementing Atlantic HMS FMPs or FMP amendments. The intent of this meeting is to consider alternatives for the conservation and management of all Atlantic tunas, swordfish, billfish, and shark fisheries. We anticipate discussing: • Draft Amendment 14, which would revise the framework used for the establishment of acceptable biological catch (ABCs) and annual catch limits (ACLs) for Atlantic shark fisheries consistent with the National Standard 1 guidelines; • Management of the recreational billfish fishery in 2021 resulting from overharvest of the Atlantic blue marlin, white marlin, and roundscale spearfish 250-fish landings limit in 2020; and • The Draft HMS Electronic Technology Plan. Additional information on the meeting and a copy of the draft agenda will be posted prior to the meeting at: https://www.fisheries.noaa.gov/event/ december-2020-hms-advisory-panelmeeting.
