Summary

NEAMAP stands for NorthEast Area Monitoring and Assessment Program. NEAMAP was developed to meet the needs of fisheries management and stock assessment activities in the northeastern United States. NEAMAP began in 2006 with a fall pilot survey and in 2008 began conducting both a spring and fall survey. NEAMAP samples from Cape Cod, MA south to Cape Hatteras, NC and targets both juvenile and adult fishes. NEAMAP is an integrated, cooperative state/federal data collection program. Its mission is to facilitate the collection and dissemination of fishery-independent information obtained in the Northeast for use by state and federal fisheries management agencies, the fishing industry (commercial and recreational), researchers, and others [...]

Purpose

The Northeast Area Monitoring and Assessment Program (NEAMAP), was developed in 2007 to address a gap in fishery-independent survey coverage. The main objectives of this survey were defined to include the estimation of abundance, biomass, length frequency distribution, age-structure, diet composition, and various other assessment-related parameters for fishes and select invertebrates inhabiting the survey area.
