The Catch Accounting and Monitoring System or CAMS is a single comprehensive source for all Northeast U.S. commercial fisheries catch both landings and discards. Developed as a joint venture between the NEFSC and GARFO, once it undergoes peer review CAMS will serve as a single source of data to be used in quota monitoring, stock assessments, protected resources bycatch estimation, ecosystem modeling, and other future needs.
An external peer review by representatives from the Center of Independent Experts (CIE) will focus on a comprehensive evaluation of this work. The public is invited.
