A commercial herring permittee survey was mailed to all California permit holders this week. This brief survey will help inform Fishery Management Plan (FMP) development and collect input on potential changes to commercial regulations for Pacific herring in California. Please take time to complete the survey and provide important feedback to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW). If you have questions please reach out to staff indicated on the survey. Your time and effort is appreciated.
As FMP development continues, please stay tuned for more stakeholder engagement opportunities later this summer. An updated timeline has also been added to the CDFW website under Pacific Herring Fishery Management Plan.
