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 596 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 supercede dealer records.

These data are the best available to NOAA’s National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) when this report was compiled. Data for this report are supplied to NMFS from vessels via the Vessel Monitoring System. Data may be preliminary. Discrepancies with previous reports are due to corrections made to the database.
