New England Catch Share Management Programs

This grant supports implementation of catch shares (formerly known as dedicated access privileges, or DAPs) in the entire groundfish fishery and in the offshore sea scallop fishery, and evaluates feasibility of implementation in a nearshore locally-managed bay scallop fishery. Through implementation in the carefully chosen portfolio of fisheries, targeted political advocacy work, and scientific knowledge around catch shares performance and biological assessments, Environmental Defense will help to make catch shares the default management mechanism for New England fisheries.
