Tatum, Chairman GULF STATES MARINE FISHERIES COMMISSION Post Office Box '126 Ocean Springs, Mississippi SEPTEMBER 198'1 INTRODUCTION The Southeast Area Monitoring and Assessment Program (SEAMAP) is a cooperative State/Federal/university program for the collection, management and dissemination of fishery-independent data (data collected without direct reliance on any commercial or recreational fishery) and information in the southeast region. Presently operational are the SEAMAP-Gulf and SEAMAP-South Atlantic programs; a SEAMAP-Caribbean program is currently in the planning stage. l This Marine Directory, incorporated into the Thirty-seventh Annual Report of the Gulf States Marine Fisheries Commission, updates information contained in the 1983, 1984, 1985, and 1986 SEAMAP Marine Directories, and describes survey activities (ongoing programs, vessel schedules, etc.) throughout the Gulf of Mexico. The SEAMAP Program is managed through the office of the Gulf States Marine Fisheries Commission. Agencies responding to the 1986 Directory were contacted in March 1987 and requested to provide current information or projected changes in their survey programs, Tables 1, 2 and 3 are condensed summaries of information submitted by responding agencies and organizations, indicated as either Federal, State or university activities. Representatives of agencies contributing information to past directories are listed alphabetically in Appendix A by organizational category. The SEAMAP Subcommittee would like to express its appreciation to all organizations responding to the request for information. Other organizations conducting fishery-independent marine or estuarine surveys are encouraged to contact the SEAMAP Program for inclusion in future listings. The Directory will be updated each year, with copies supplied to participating organizations. Appendix B lists published documents which have been produced by the SEAMAP Program and are available through the Gulf States Marine Fisheries Commission. Questions and requests for detailed information concerning the Directory or the SEAMAP Program should be referred to: Tom Van Devender SEAMAP-Gulf Coordinator Gulf States Marine Fisheries Commission Post Office Box 726 Ocean Springs, Mississippi (601) l_ TABLE 1.
