NOAA Fisheries’ Northeast Fisheries Science Center and the New England Fishery Management Council are pleased to announce that 15 projects have been recommended for support from the 2016-2017 sea scallop research set-aside program.

The process was highly competitive, and more than 30 proposals were received. These proposals were evaluated by technical reviewers for technical merit, and by a panel of experts engaged in sea scallop management for responsiveness to the Council research priorities.
