NOAA's Bullard hosts Monday phone forum

Local fishermen have a chance Monday to sound off on the state of the local groundfish industry, and to learn about assistance available.

John Bullard, Northeast regional administrator for NOAA Fisheries, is hosting an open conference call to solicit feedback from fishermen and other stakeholders on the draft Working Document on Resources to Support the Northeast Groundfish Industry.

Fishermen can dial in from 3 to 5 p.m. by calling 888-989-3382; the pass code is “fishing.”

The working document is a compilation of some information and ideas to help this industry maintain its viability through these challenging times.

It is a starting point from which industry members, government agencies, elected officials, non-governmental organizations, and others can take action to help preserve this fishery, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

For more information, contact Olivia Rugo at NOAA’s regional office in Blackburn Park at 978-675-2167 or through Olivia.rugo@noaa.gov
