Organization - Environmental Defense
Grant Amount - $1,980,192
Foundation - Moore Foundation
Grant Purpose - This grant supports implementation of Dedicated Access Privileges (DAPs, also known as "catch shares") in the entire groundfish fishery and in the offshore sea scallop fishery, and evaluates feasibility of implementation in a nearshore locally-managed bay scallop fishery. Through implementation in the carefully chosen portfolio of fisheries, targeted political advocacy work, and scientific knowledge around DAP performance and biological assessments, Environmental Defense will help to make DAPs the default management mechanism for New England fisheries.
