Action proposes to modify Delawareâ€™s commercial weakfish management approach of intermittent net closure days from May 1-June 30 to an uninterrupted closed season (all gears) from May 1-June 2. The amendment proposes a weakfish bycatch allowance during the closure of up to 100 pounds per day or trip for the commercial gill net fishery and accommodates commercial fishing for species other than weakfish (e.g., Atlantic menhaden and black drum).
The hearing record on the proposed changes to 3521 Weakfish Size Limits; Possession Limits; Seasons will be open May 1, 2014. Individuals may submit written comments or request additional information regarding the proposed changes via e-mail to Lisa.Vest@state.de.us or via the USPS to Lisa Vest, Hearing Officer, DNREC, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, DE 19901 (302) 739-9042.
