2013 Mid-Atlantic Research Set-Aside (RSA): NMFS, with assistance from the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council (Council), is soliciting proposals that address Mid-Atlantic RSA research priorities concerning summer flounder, scup, black sea bass, longfin squid, Illex squid, Atlantic mackerel, butterfish, and bluefish. Proceeds from the sale of research quota are used to pay for research costs and to compensate fishing vessel owners that harvest RSA quota. No Federal funds are provided for research under this notification. Rather, proceeds generated from the sale of RSA quota will be used to fund research activities and/or harvest set-aside quota. Projects funded under the Mid-Atlantic RSA Program must enhance the knowledge of subject Mid-Atlantic fishery resources or contribute to the body of information on which Council management decisions are made. Priority will be given to proposals that investigate research priorities identified by the Council, which are detailed under the Program Priorities section of this announcement.
