We began working on groundfish sector monitoring issues in the years leading up to the implementation of sectors with a pilot project on dockside monitoring. In addition to convening the industry around how to allocate federal funding for dockside monitoring among sectors, we also administered federal funds.

While the dockside monitoring program ended in 2011, we convened a similar industry working group around at-sea monitoring in 2011 and 2012 when the New England Fisheries Management Council was revising provisions within the sector at-sea monitoring program.
