Project Description

This project is a continuation of the previously funded (2013, 2014) assessment work in Florida and is complementary to similar projects in Alabama and Mississippi. The project will fund the third phase of a five-year study to implement a significant expansion of the collection of data on both catch effort and stock assessment in the northern and eastern Gulf of Mexico. This data will be used to assess the recovery of reef fish stocks in association with restoration efforts implemented in response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, improve and expand single-species stock assessments for managed fish species, and foster improved ecosystem-based assessment and management capabilities.
