Cooperative agreements to USA individuals, corporations, and government and Tribal agencies for research and development of technologies that impact marine life. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to finalize. Research topics suitable for study on American lobster and its fishery should have a geographic focus on the Gulf of Maine, Georges Bank, and/or southern New England.
Recent research and regulatory changes have combined to produce an economically complex and ecologically mixed picture about the current and future state of the American lobster fishery. Recent regulatory changes impacting where and how the lobster industry operates have introduced economic uncertainties that place additional pressures on fishing communities as well. The sustainability of the American Lobster fishery relies both on economic resiliency of the industry and ecological understanding of the species.
