This research has been generously funded by the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA), the Cooperative Research Partners Program (CRPP) and was further supported by the New England Fisheries Management Council (NEFMC).

Our thanks are also extended to the fishermen, scientists and tagging technicians who have worked so hard and effectively within, and in association with, six partner organizations throughout the region: the Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Island Institute, Maine Department of Marine Resources, Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences, Cape Cod Commercial Hook Fishermen’s Association and the School for Marine Science and Technology (UMASS Dartmouth).

Finally, we acknowledge the hard work of Northern Geomantics who were contracted for their expertise in online GIS mapping technology and database development.
