The Measuring the Effects of Catch Shares project team developed and analyzed a set of indicators of ecological, economic, social, and governance changes in the first five years of two U.S. catch share fisheries: the West Coast Shorebased Individual Fishing Quota (IFQ) Program and the Northeast Multispecies Sector Program. The indicators help answer Key Questions that people often ask about catch share programs.
