  • Description:
    "This document presents the Protected Species Branch's (PSB) approach to estimating the magnitude of observer coverage needed to monitor loggerhead interactions rates in the Mid-Atlantic (i.e. west of 70°W) with 30% precision, based on available analyses (Warden 2011b, Murray 2009b, Murray 2011). While a 30% precision goal has been recommended by the National Working Group on Bycatch (NMFS 2004), monitoring requirements for a range of precision goals are also reported here. Estimated sea days to monitor loggerhead interactions are subsequently integrated with sea day projections for fish, estimated annually under the Standardized Bycatch Reporting Methodology (SBRM) Omnibus Amendment to fishery management plans of the Northeast region (Wigley et al. 2012). Sea day projections for nonloggerhead species outside the Mid-Atlantic are not computed in this report, but may be possible in the future should new information become available"--Intro.
