Mashkoor Malik presented the results of a UNH Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping (CCOM) study of the seafloor of the WGOMCA.
Objectives The objectives for the CCOM study were to:
• Construct a bathymetric map of Jeffrey’s Ledge to serve as a framework for subsequent studies.
• Test the potential use of multibeam sonar to monitor fishing gear impacts.
• Determine if it is possible to observe closure impacts with multibeam sonar.
