Northeast Fisheries Observer Coverage Requirements

Received from

HYANNIS – The 2019-2020 Northeast Fisheries Observer sea-day requirements and schedule, and three new reports, are now available.

Together these documents show how many days the NOAA Observer Program needs to cover to obtain data needed to estimate discard for 14 federally managed species groups and sea turtles in 63 fleets across the region, how the days are determined, and how they are allocated to each of the three monitoring selection systems used.

For more information on the schedule and information, contact Shelley Dawicki, 508 495 2378.
