NOAA Fisheries Announces an Additional Atlantic Shark Identification Workshop to be Held in Bohemia, NY on December 10, 2015

Posted October 21, 2015

NMFS published a Federal Register notice on September 10, 2015 (80 FR 54533), announcing the dates and locations of three Atlantic Shark Identification Workshops to be held during October – December of 2015.  Attendance at an Atlantic Shark Identification Workshop is mandatory for all federally permitted Atlantic shark dealers in order to meet certain regulatory requirements and to maintain valid permits.  Based upon recent analysis indicating the need for an additional workshop in the New York and southern New England area to accommodate Atlantic shark dealers who purchase smooth dogfish, this notice announces an additional free Atlantic Shark Identification Workshop that will be conducted on December 10, 2015, in Bohemia, NY.  Dealers may also attend the previously scheduled November 12, 2015, workshop in Mount Pleasant, SC or the December 3, 2015, workshop in Largo, FL (80 FR 54533).
