Summary: This seminar will highlight the major findings and new indicators presented in the 2022 State of the Ecosystem reports which were delivered to the Mid-Atlantic and New England Fishery Management Councils. These annual reports provide the current status of the Northeast Shelf marine ecosystems (Georges Bank, Gulf of Maine, and the Mid-Atlantic Bight). They inform the councils about social, ecological, and economic aspects of the ecosystem from fishing engagement to oceanographic and climate conditions. The purpose of the reports is to highlight changes and trends in a variety of ecosystem indicators and are intended to inform fishery managers of changing ecosystem conditions.
