Information Quality Act Compliance: In accordance with section 515 of Public Law 106-554, the Northeast Fisheries Science Center completed both technical and policy reviews for this report. These predissemination reviews are on file at the NEFSC Editorial Office.
CORRECTION November 2, 2011: In the first edition of this report, released on October 24, 2011, the values in Table 23 for live pounds (and associated percent of total) of allocated ACE for vessels 30' to < 50' were mistakenly switched with the values for vessels 75' and greater. This error made it appear that vessels 75' and greater caught more than their allocation. The error in Table 23 was corrected along with the text on page 18 (end of Section 5.1) that discusses Table 23 and a related figure (Figure 13).
