In 2017, Council staff began to develop Fishery Performance Reports (like those seen at the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council) using the information and guidance provided by Advisory Panel Members and their discussions of species specific issues. Advisory Panels focus on a given species for each report, providing insights into regional differences, catch, and regulatory concerns. These reports will serve as a living record of what fishermen are experiencing on the water.
