The three-day Gulf State Recreational Catch and Effort Surveys Transition Workshop will begin Wednesday, February 23, 2022. This virtual workshop will serve as a forum for NOAA Fisheries, its state and regional partners, and a team of independent experts to agree on the elements of a Gulf State Recreational Catch and Effort Surveys Transition Plan. When executed, this plan will allow for the full use of state recreational fishing data in NOAA Fisheries’ stock assessment and management processes.
Establish a research plan to improve our understanding of the differences between state and federal estimates of recreational catch.
Select an approach that will allow state data to be used in federal stock assessments and management decisions.
Establish the data input, storage, and output requirements of a regional state survey database.
Agree on the goals and components of a communications plan to maintain transparency throughout the transition process.
