Gulf of Maine Research Institute (2008-Summer)

Regulations for groundfishing in the Gulf of Maine and on Geroges Bank are changing to allow fishermen to gather in cooperative “sectors.” How will the catch be monitored and reported under the new system? We were hired to facilitate discussions among fishing trade associations, regulators, scientists, and environmental groups to explore consensus on monitoring and reporting methods. We also prepared a complete report of the meeting, which was submitted directly to the New England Fisheries Management Council.
