Title: Framework Adjustment 8 to the Atlantic Herring Fishery Management Plan 

In response to action by the New England Fishery Management Council based on the most recent stock assessment, this rulemaking action would set 2021-2023 fishing year specifications and adjust current herring measures.  Changes in herring specifications may impact the Atlantic mackerel fishery because the fisheries often operate concurrently.  Accordingly, this action would adjust current measures by providing more flexibility to participants in the Atlantic herring fishery in order to facilitate increased participation in the Atlantic mackerel fishery.  The objectives of this action are to meet the overall goal of the Atlantic Herring Fishery Management Plan of managing the Atlantic herring fishery at long-term sustainable levels consistent with the National Standards of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act.
