The Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council is seeking a contractor to develop a “proof-of-concept” survey for blueline and golden tilefish. The work would be used to implement a relative abundance survey (from Cape Hatteras through the northernmost extent of their range) and should involve both design and pilot implementation components, as well as consideration of coordination with any other relevant surveys.
Interested parties should provide a proposal including methodology, timeline, costs, qualifications, and three references by August 19, 2016. Please see the Request for Proposals linked below for complete details and submission instructions.
