Federal Consistency Determinations have been submitted to the Delaware Coastal Management Program for the following:

Amendment 22 – Summer Flounder, Scup, and Sea Bass FMP (2022.0070)

The National Marine Fisheries Service proposes to implement Amendment 22 to the Summer Flounder, Scup, and Black Sea Bass Fishery Management Plan (FMP). Amendment 22 would establish updated commercial and recreational sector allocations for summer flounder, scup, and black sea bass and add the option for future modifications to allocations and transfer provisions to be considered through an FMP framework action as opposed to an amendment.
