Stock Assessment and Fishery Evaluation (SAFE) reports are documents or sets of documents that summarize the best scientific information available for federally managed fish stocks. This includes information concerning the biological condition of stocks and marine ecosystems, essential fish habitat (EFH), and the socioeconomic condition of commercial and recreational fisheries. The Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act requires that SAFE reports be made available on a publicly accessible website to facilitate use of the information.

The Northeast Multispecies SAFE Report for large-mesh groundfish stocks in the complex includes the following documents:

1. Framework Adjustment 66 Environmental Assessment (EA) and Appendices: Social and economic status; significant trends; previous management actions; fishery specifications; fishing mortality; bycatch of non-target species; economic, social, and biological impacts of measures

2. Management Track Assessment Reports: Stock and ecosystem status; SDC; data gaps; fishing mortality

3. Omnibus Essential Fish Habitat Amendment 2, Volumes 1-5: Essential fish habitat (EFH) description and impacts
