  • Look at how NOAA counts fish and how that could be enhanced to better manage recreational anglers and support stronger re-building of fish populations;

  • Discuss NOAA's current development of a "National Recreational Fishing Policy and Implementation Plan" impacts ecosystem based management and how it can influence the Reauthorization of the Magnuson Stevens Act; and

  • How to continue to build an Action Plan that works toward a secure future for Recreational Fishing, which the Rhode Island Saltwater Anglers Association can promote with its membership and partners.
