HMSC Research Seminar-The Northwest Fisheries Science Center Observer Program: What is it and how does it work?

Speaker: Christa Colway and Kate Richerson,, Observer Program, NOAA

Topic: The Northwest Fisheries Science Center Observer Program: What is it and how does it work?

The Fisheries Observation Science Program at the Northwest Fisheries Science Center places field biologists onboard U.S. commercial fishing vessels that target or incidentally catch West Coast groundfish species. These observers collect biological samples and data on fishing operations, catch composition, protected species interactions, and, most importantly, the amount of bycatch incidentally discarded. Observer data play a key role in the management of groundfish stocks and the recovery of many depleted stocks. We’ll provide an overview of the program, the data we collect, and our collaborations with other institutions and researchers.
