The NOAA Northeast Region website's Fish Species Pages are sporting a new look, the agency says. The first redesigned page being rolled out is for squid, mackerel and butterfish.
The plan, NOAA says, is to redesign all of its species pages over the next several months. NOAA is also encouraging users to comment on the new design as well as make suggestions on how to further improve the pages to make it easier for them to find information they need about the species and current regulations.

Visitors to the page will find general information about the fishery as well as announcements, information about stock status, quotas, permits, commercial and recreational fisheries, and reporting requirements.
