*The limited access fleet is not split into dredge and trawl components because there is insufficient observer coverage for such a stratification.
In order to comply with data confidentiality requirements, discards for areas and/or gear types that only have 1 - 2 vessels in a month will be aggregated with discards from preceding month(s) until the 3 vessel minimum is met.
NOTE: When available, this report uses the most recent 12 months of audited observer data (March 2017 - March 2018) for both fleets in Southern New England, Mid-Atlantic and Nantucket Lightship.
These data are the best available to NOAA's National Marine Fishery Service (NMFS) when this report was compiled. Data for this report are supplied to NMFS from vessels via Vessel Trip Reporting and the Vessel Monitoring System, and dealers via Dealer Electronic Reporting. Data may be preliminary. Discrepancies with previous reports are due to corrections made to the database.
