2016-2017 Monkfish Research Set-Aside Awards Announced

NOAA Fisheries is pleased to announce, in coordination with the New England and Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Councils, the selection of two cooperative research proposals submitted to the 2016/2017 Monkfish Research Set Aside (RSA) Program.

Both projects propose to build on previous research in an effort to identify monkfish stock structure through genetic studies, and to estimate growth and movement of juvenile monkfish.
