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 2,102 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

The data used to produce this report are the best available to NOAA Fisheries at the time the report was generated. Data for this report are primarily from data received through various NOAA Fisheries data collection programs, which include data from our partner organizations, such as: Vessel Monitoring Systems; Vessel Trip Reports; Dealer Purchase Reports; and the Northeast Fisheries Observer Program. As part of its data quality assurance/quality control program, NOAA Fisheries routinely audits and corrects data, which may lead to differences between quota monitoring reports.
