"A Cooperative Research Approach to Ecosystem Based Fisheries Management"

Michael Ball, Study Fleet Program Coordinator,
Northeast Fisheries Center, Woods Hole, MA

The Study Fleet Program, under the Northeast Cooperative Research Program, partners with a subset of commercial fishing vessels to collect high quality, high resolution, self-reported data on fishing effort, area fished, gear characteristics, catch, and biological observations. Data collected from these vessels can be used for a variety of different purposes such as supplementing the stock assessment process, developing real time hot spot avoidance maps for industry, providing detailed food web dynamics information to scientists, and contributing environmental information to habitat modelers. The Study Fleet Program utilizes a variety of technologies to aid in data collection including integrated GPS units, depth sounders, and vessel monitoring systems, wireless temperature and depth loggers, wireless length frequency boards, and the self-reporting Fishery Logbook Data Recording System (FLDRS). Depending on the needs of industry and scientists, FLDRS can be tailored towards s pecific projects including tow-by-tow biological research, the collection of enhanced biological data, and studies pertaining to gear characteristics. With the array of data collected, and ability to provide a dynamic self-reported data system, the Study Fleet Program provides a unique ecosystem based approach to the collection, analysis, and production of industry-dependent data.

Set in a time-bending, darkly comic world between heaven and hell, The Last Days of Judas Iscariot reexamines the plight and fate of the New Testament’s most infamous and unexplained sinner. A brilliantly funny and strikingly poignant piece of theatre, the plot unwinds in a courthouse where a brave lawyer seeks to defend the soul of Judas Iscariot from eternal damnation. It discusses truth, betrayal, friendship, love, faith and self-forgiveness.

Graphic language; recommended for mature audiences.

Tickets are $14 for adults, $12 for seniors and youth at the Silver Center Box Office. Tickets are also available online at silver.plymouth.edu.
