In December 2002, the Department of Fish and Game (Department) submitted their draft Abalone Recovery and Management Plan (ARMP) to the Fish and Game Commission (Commission) to embark on its adoption process. The Department will formally present the draft ARMP to the Commission during their February meeting in Sacramento. During the draft ARMP adoption period, the Commission will be the lead agency for all activities and will determine a timeline for the formal public comment period.

Prior to drafting the ARMP, the department held a commercial constituent workshop and two advisory committee meetings to aid in the development of the document. Following the completion of the first ARMP draft, the document was reviewed by a panel of marine scientists (peer review), in addition to an informal public comment period where two town hall meetings were held. To gain further public input, written comments were accepted throughout the drafts growth. The draft ARMP was modified and improved based on the comments received during the peer and public review process. A peer review report on the draft ARMP will be submitted to the commission.

Copies of the draft ARMP can be found on the Departments' abalone resource web site and at DFG offices listed below. To comply with California's Paper Reduction Act, only one hard copy of the ARMP will be available at each office. Written comments on the ARMP can be sent to; California Fish and Game Commission, Abalone Recovery and Management Plan, 1416 Ninth Street, Sacramento, CA 95814. More on how the public may provide comments, commission meeting schedule and bonus abalone information will also be posted on the Web address listed above.
