  • The Nature Conservancy (TNC) has issued a report to the New England Fisheries Management Council that estimates the expected costs for installing and operating EM systems on one hundred groundfish vessels for three years. Using data from the fishing year 2017 groundfish EM program, TNC contracted with CapLog Group LLC to develop the report’s detailed projections, meant to inform the Council, federal policymakers and other stakeholders as broader roll-out of EM is considered in New England.
