The Management Information Systems (MIS) and Fisheries Statistics
Project collects, analyzes, and distributes catch/effort and
economic data from lobster, shellfish and "regulated"
fisheries through catch reports from licensed fishermen. These
data are used to assist managers in the development of fisheries
management plans. Some of the more frequently
requested fisheries data can be found under the Quotas
and Landings section of our website.
2000 Lobster Price
The Project works in cooperation with other government agencies,
including the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS),
to streamline data collection and reduce duplicate reporting.
Quota Managed Fisheries
The Project also tracks and reports landings of quota-monitored
species through weekly dealer reports. This information is used by managers
to make projections about fishery closings. Total landings
of regulated species up to the current week can be found on
and landings section of our website or by calling the
phone system, also supported by the MIS & Fisheries
Statistics Program, at 978-282-0308. Follow the prompts to
find out landings as well as commercial and recreational fishery
regulations and reporting requirements.
MarineFisheries is a partner in the Atlantic Coastal
Cooperative Statistics Program (ACCSP).
The project has provided major assistance for the development
and implementation of a uniform marine fisheries data collection
and data warehousing system. Project staff currently serve
on various ACCSP committees including the Operations Committee,
the Computer Technical Committee and the Permitting &
Registration Tracking Work Group.
Other services and support provided by this project include
Geographic Information System (GIS), network administration
and maintenance, Oracle relational database application development,
Internet and Intranet web site maintenance, and oversight
of IT procurement for the entire agency.
This Project is partially funded by two federal grants, one
from the Interjurisdictional Fisheries Act and one from the
Atlantic Coast Fisheries Cooperative Management Act.
