Note 1: Those downloading these profiles for use in an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) should be aware that an addendum will be required for each profile in which updated information relative to the EIS in question is added, principally under the heading "Involvement in Northeast Fisheries," but also likely under "Issues/Processes" and possibly also "Current Economy."

Note 2: North Carolina profiles are included here in the same format as the Northeast profiles because of the importance of North Carolina ports to some Northeast fisheries.  For the full set of Southeast Region community profiles, please see the following: 

Note 3: Landings and permit data for these profiles are as of August 8, 2007.  Since even past year files are occasionally updated with late arriving information, the totals may not be identical to information downloaded before or after that date.
