New Partnership Will Update and Improve Mid-Atlantic and Northeast Commercial Fisheries Data Products

The Mid-Atlantic Regional Council on the Ocean and the Northeast Regional Ocean Council are partnering with the Responsible Offshore Development Alliance to engage commercial fishermen in the development of updated maps and data for the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic Ocean Data Portals. This new project, which will be implemented from January to September 2020, will increase collaboration with the fishing industry on updating and developing products that represent their knowledge and experience, and seeks to improve fishing industry trust in the data used to inform decisions.
