Please note: The first edition of this report was released on June 9, 2016. This second edition of the report is being issued to correct an error in the first edition. The start date of the fishing year for the Surfclam and Ocean Quahog fishery was incorrect in the first edition. This has been corrected to January 1 in Table 1. Furthermore, this correction has resulted to slight changes to three sets of figures. Figures 4 through 6 have been corrected to incorporate this change. The authors are grateful to José Montañez at the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council for pointing out this error.
