Industry Engagement

In spring of 2014, GMRI, SMAST, and external contractors, conducted a total of 57 interviews with the fishing industry (fishermen, dealers, industry organizations, and 3rd party service providers) throughout the Greater Atlantic region. The interviews gathered insight on personal perceptions, how the current data system is used, and suggestions for an ideal system. Key themes emerging from the interviews included data accessibility, accuracy, efficiency, flexibility, and responsiveness.
