The California Department of Fish and Game (CDFG) will
officially propose that the San Francisco Bay herring fishery be closed
next season (2003-2004) at an informational public meeting to be held
on Thursday, 5 June. Currently, the CDFG is looking into two options
for the San Francisco Bay Herring fishery; one being to close it, the
second being to put the quota at 2,000 to 3,000 tons. Both options will
be presented to the CDFG Commission for approval and will be
discussed at public meetings this summer. A 300-ton fishing quota for
Tomales Bay has also been proposed. The 5 June public meeting will
start at 0930 HRS in Sausalito at the Bay Model. There will be an
afternoon meeting of the Director's Herring Advisory Committee
(DHAC) immediately following the public meeting. For more
information visit the CDFG website:

Herring Fishery Manager, at (650)631-6789.
