The Transboundary Management Guidance Committee (TMGC) meets as required, considers the scientific advice contained in Transboundary Status Reports, incorporates information received from fishermen, reaches agreement by consensus and produces a common guidance document for the management of transboundary resources that is communicated to national fisheries management authorities.

The process developed by the TMGC through its consultations in 2002 for determining and implementing annual harvest levels and adopting management measures for transboundary resources of cod, haddock and yellowtail flounder on Georges Bank is outlined in the flowchart.

Proposed Annual Process for Determining Harvest Levels

If the Council or GOMAC disagree with TMGC recommendations, they will be referred back to the TMGC for further refinement.
