FCC & AMCC Comment on Revisions to MSA National Standards Guidelines

On September 5, 2023, the Fishing Communities Coalition (FCC), in close collaboration with Alaska Marine Conservation Council (AMCC), provided detailed comments to the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) on the proposed revisions to the Guidelines for National Standards 4, 8 and 9 of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSA). Comments are due September 12, 2023.

AMCC is a longtime member of the FCC - a diverse group of community-based, small boat commercial fishing organizations representing more than 1,000 independent fishermen and business owners from across the country who are all committed to promoting sustainable, equitable, science-based fishery management. The FCC develops national solutions for community-based fisheries in the US and provides a unified, national voice for its member organizations. Our voices are united in support for the guideline updates included in these comments. To view our comments, click the PDF link below.
