The three core objectives recommended
in this report are:
1) Develop a
collaborative cod-tagging program between fishermen and
scientists to build bridges and strengthen working relationships
towards improved understanding of marine ecosystem functioning.
Improve understanding of current cod distribution and
movement patterns throughout Gulf of Maine, Georges Bank,
Southern New England and coastal waters.
a foundation for future U.S./Canada, industry/scientific
community collaborations to enhance understanding of shared
marine resources (e.g., tagging programs for other species).
