Together with partner organizations, fisheries management agencies, and scientists, NH Sea Grant has helped to convene meetings and workshops related to the population structure of Atlantic cod. An Atlantic Cod Stock Structure Working Group was formed in early 2018 to inventory and summarize all relevant peer-reviewed information about stock structure of Atlantic cod in U. S. and adjacent waters. A number of engagements with stakeholders, including a peer-review evaluation under the auspices of the New England Fishery Management Council, were key to the working group’s success.
