Northeast Region: Activities include the development and monitoring of interstate fishery management plans; fishery research and stock assessment; habitat conservation; and law enforcement. In 2001, the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) received $1,925,948 to manage, enhance, restore and maintain the shared fisheries of the Atlantic Coast, with the principal emphasis on the conservation and restoration of migratory marine and diadromous fishery resources and their habitat, as well as the maintenance, enhancement, and improvement of public uses and benefits from these resources. In 2000, ASMFC received $1,624,193 to conduct similar activities. Further activities of the same nature are expected to be carried out by ASMFC in 2002.
