Fishermen and scientists have merged their expert knowledge about the Gulf of Maine to create a better understanding of fish, habitat, species interactions, and spatial and temporal dynamics. The resulting diagrams, charts, and text presented here enable more sophisticated ecosystem-based decision making and relevant scientific work.
The report contains results of a collaborative project of the Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance (NAMA), the Coastal Ocean Observing Center at the University of New Hampshire (COOA), and the Gulf of Maine Ocean Observing System (GoMOOS). [Published August 2006]
