Processing and Ageing of Biological Samples from South Atlantic Commercial and Recreational Fisheries

As one of two federal partnerships in the ACCSP, NOAA Fisheries has been fundamental in the development of the Program. One of the benefits of the relationship with NOAA Fisheries is the ability to coordinate and centralize regional data sets to integrate into the Data Warehouse. For instance, one project that the ACCSP has funded has been for the Southeast Ageing Project. The Southeast Fisheries Science Center Beaufort Laboratory works to inventory, process, and age reef fish species collected from the various South Atlantic fisheries, as well as conducting age workshops and sample exchanges with partner lab to ensure consistency in age readings. Since 2012, staff in the fish ageing lab were able to age over 43,000 fish, process another 10,000, conducted three age workshops, and built 11 individual species reference collections for interlaboratory exchanges. Species being studied were processed based on the stock assessment schedule set by SEDAR (Southeast Data, Assessment and Review). In addition, the lab continued to process samples of high priority species, such as black sea bass (pictured right), vermilion snapper, red porgy, gag, red grouper, blueline tilefish, and tilefish on an annual basis. For more on how ACCSP collaborates with other aspects of NOAA, please see the National Networking section later in this report.
