South Atlantic Fishery Management Council
Gag, snowy grouper, golden tilefish, king mackerel and greater amberjack are just some of the species the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council is scheduled to discuss at its December meetings.
The council, headquartered in Charleston, S.C., is responsible for the conservation and management of fish stocks within the federal 200-mile limit of the Atlantic off the coasts of North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and east Florida to Key West.
The role of the council is to develop fishery management plans needed to manage fishery resources within federal waters. The area encompassing federal waters, sometimes referred to as the Exclusive Economic Zone or EEZ, extends offshore from state waters (three miles in the South Atlantic) to 200 nautical miles.
