Most of these takes were from the VA and NC winter mixed stock management unit, in state waters and from large mesh fisheries. The 19% reduction in total mortality from 2001 to 2002 is attributed to a reduction in metric tons of fish landed. The average mortality (78 animals) from the… CONTINUE READING
