NOAA Fisheries Offers Paperless Way to Receive Information about Fishing Regulations and Management Actions

This is an annual reminder that NOAA Fisheries offers you two ways to receive your fishery bulletins.  These bulletins contain fishing regulation information and are typically referred to as "the blue sheets."

You may receive a copy of the bulletin two ways:

Electronic/E-mail:

To receive an on-line copy of the NOAA Fisheries Southeast Fishery Bulletin, which explains current and proposed fishing regulations please visit  http://sero.nmfs.noaa.gov/fishbulletin.  You can unsubscribe at any time.

The electronic copy of the bulletin, sent via e-mail, will be delivered to you faster than a paper copy, is in color, features informational links, and reduces paper use.

Note: If you already receive electronic fishery bulletins via email, your subscription will not be affected and you do NOT need to sign up again now. 

Text Message Notifications:
