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.
