DURHAM, N.H. – The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department will hold a public hearing on proposed Atlantic Menhaden rules at 7:00 p.m. on April 3, 2018, at the Urban Forestry Center, 45 Elwyn Road, Portsmouth, NH. The public is invited to attend and offer comments on new proposed rules from a previous public comment period.

These rules address a new amendment to the Atlantic Menhaden Fisheries Management Plan that reflects an increase in New Hampshire’s quota for Atlantic Menhaden; changes to the take, landing, and possession of Atlantic menhaden; and reporting requirements to ensure the quota is not exceeded.
