Northeast Trawl Advisory Panel (NTAP)

The Northeast Trawl Advisory Panel (NTAP) is a joint advisory panel of the Mid-Atlantic and New England Fishery Management Councils.  It is composed of Council members, fishing industry, academic, and government and non-government fisheries experts who will provide advice and direction on the conduct of trawl research.

The NTAP was established to bring commercial fishing, fisheries science, and fishery management professionals in the northeastern US together to identify concerns about regional research survey performance and data, to identify methods to address or mitigate these concerns, and to promote mutual understanding and acceptance of the results of this work among their peers and in the broader community.
