Generic Seafood Dealer Amendment (Gulf of Mexico and South Atlantic)
The Council approved the Generic Dealer Amendment during last week’s meeting. Developed jointly with the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council, the amendment will improve data collection efforts by increasing the number of species that require purchase through a federally licensed dealer, improving the timeliness in dealer reporting, and modifying requirements for maintaining federal dealer permits. The amendment would also create a universal dealer permit for both the South Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico regions. The amendment will be submitted to the Secretary of Commerce for final approval.
