This webinar will highlight the major findings and new indicators presented in the 2020 State of the Ecosystem reports which were delivered to the Mid-Atlantic and New England Fishery Management Councils. These annual reports provide the current status of the Northeast Shelf marine ecosystems (Georges Bank, Gulf of Maine, and the Mid-Atlantic Bight). They inform the councils about social, ecological, and economic aspects of the ecosystem from fishing engagement to oceanographic and climate conditions. The purpose of the reports is to highlight changes and trends in a variety of ecosystem indicators and are intended to inform fishery managers of changing ecosystem conditions. This work is highly collaborative and includes contributions from at least 38 individuals from eight different organizations both internal and external to NOAA.

Kimberly Bastille is a scientific data analyst with the NEFSC Ecosystem Dynamics and Assessment Branch in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. She holds a Master’s from the University of Bergen and a Bachelor’s from the University of Maine and Machias.
