Project Description

Implements a significant and meaningful expansion of the collection of fishery-independent data in the northern and eastern Gulf of Mexico. These data will be used to assess the recovery of offshore assemblages in association with restoration efforts implemented in response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill; improve and expand single-species stock assessments for managed species; and foster improved ecosystem-based assessment and management capabilities.
