²Estimates not applicable. Lobster/crab bycatch was not attributed to the ACL, consistent with the most recent assessments for these stocks used to set the respective quotas.
*Some or all catch attributed to separate sub-ACL as shown in Tables 1 through 5, and so is not included above. *Some or all catch attributed to separate sub-ACL as shown in Tables 1 through 5, and so is not included above.

October 17, 2017, run date of Sept. 19, 2017 These criteria are used by the Greater Atlantic Regional Fisheries Office to categorize trips to attribute groundfish catch for groundfish ACL accounting.  By necessity these rules cannot capture the full complexity of categorizing every trip taken by vessels fishing in the Northeast.  Further analysis should be completed to definitively attribute groundfish catch to an FMP for management purposes.
