Trip counts are included as an indicator of pounds that may may potentially be landed that are not yet in the dealer records. Using 200 lbs/trip provides a lower limit of 1,929 trips available in the Northern Gulf of Maine. Since the TAC is monitored according to pounds of scallop meats, inclusion of this information is not intended to supersede dealer records.

Observer credits have been subtracted from the total landings applied to the TAC
