Title: Connecting the Dots between Data and Atlantic Fisheries Management - NERRS/NSC(NERRS Science Collaborative)
Status: Completed

Changes in coastal conditions, including those associated with a shifting climate, can impact the spawning, growth, and ultimately, survival of commercially and recreationally important fisheries. To assess the impacts of climate on the sustainability of fish stocks and take appropriate action, management agencies need access to long-term datasets. Much of the needed data exists, but managers may lack access to it and scientists collecting the data may not know how to make it available to those who need it.


The Jacques Cousteau Reserve, in partnership with Rutgers University and reserves in the Carolinas, created an online portal for scientists and fisheries managers to retrieve and share datasets on larval fish recruitment and environmental variables and increase the precision of management decisions.
