The Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission's 2008 Annual Report is now available on-line at http://www.asmfc.org/breakingNews.htm. The Annual Report describes the Commission's activities and progress in carrying out its public trust responsibilities for the valuable marine fishery resources under its stewardship. Marine fishery resources generate billions of dollars in economic activity and tens of thousands of jobs within coastal communities. The 2008 report on the status of the stocks under Commission oversight reflects the commitment of the 15 Atlantic coast state members to accountability and transparency in all that they do.
