The program will compensate people for losses based on their fishing activity in 1998 (or, in some cases, 1997) in areas that were closed in 1999 (excluding the Western Gulf of Maine closed area).

Fishing activity will be based on the number of days fished in 1998 (or in some cases in 1997) in the following months and areas:

February: blocks 124-125

March: blocks 124-125

April: blocks 123-125, 130-133

May: blocks 129-133, 136-140

June: blocks 139-147, 152

A map showing the location of these blocks is available.
