Grants starting at $25,000 to USA and territories IHEs, commercial organizations, nonprofits, governments, and individuals for collaborative research on recreational and commercial fisheries management in the South Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico, and Carribean regions. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete.
CRP is a competitive Federal assistance program that funds projects seeking to improve the working relationship between fisheries researchers from NMFS, state fishery agencies, universities, and the U.S. fishing industry (recreational and commercial) in the Gulf of Mexico (FL, AL, MS, LA, TX), South Atlantic (FL, NC, SC, GA) and Caribbean (USVI and Puerto Rico). Congress has initiated cooperative research funding to increase transparency and improve the confidence that commercial and recreational fishermen have in data and analyses that support fisheries management.
Projects should focus on collecting data that aids in recovering, maintaining, or improving the status of stocks upon which fisheries depend; improving the understanding of factors affecting recruitment success and long-term sustainability of fisheries; and/or generating increased opportunities for fisheries. The main premise for a CRP project is to provide usable and relevant information to aid fishery researchers, scientists, and managers to make informed decisions.
Stocks managed under the Magnuson-Stevens Act are top priority, and research that can be utilized in future stock assessments is encouraged. High priority federally managed FMP species are listed here by Fishery Management Council as a guide to assist in research species/stock selection for the Gulf of Mexico, South Atlantic, Caribbean and Highly Migratory Species groups within the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) for the Region.
