Strengthening and Informing Fisheries Management

Good fisheries management requires both good science and on-the-water knowledge.

We seek to integrate the knowledge and experiences of fishermen with the best available science to help fisheries managers make decisions.

To strengthen fisheries management, we aim to:

  • Empower the fishing industry to engage in management through professional development, training, and trust building opportunities.
  • Facilitate industry-focused initiatives that improve fisheries management in New England.
  • Align harvesting controls with industry-informed objectives.
