State of the Ecosystem Reports

The annual State of the Ecosystem reports provide the current status of the Northeast Shelf marine ecosystems (Georges Bank, Gulf of Maine, and the Mid-Atlantic Bight). They are developed for the New England and the Mid-Atlantic Fisheries Management Councils. These annual and collaboratively produced reports inform the councils about socialecological, and economic aspects of the ecosystem from fishing engagement to oceanographic and climate conditions.
