Predicted temperatures were then adjusted by the difference between the means of the MARMAP
bottom temperature data for each site and the means of the predicted temperatures over approximately the first 2 annual cycles of growth for each scallop.

The Center was unable to participate in the national multiagency MARMAP
Program involving the basic collection of oceanographic data on ocean currents, water properties, and food patterns in the North Pacific.
All sampling for this study occurred during daylight hours between March and October and was conducted on 1 of 4 vessels: MARMAP
and SEAMAP-SA used the RV Palmetto (1990-2011), and SEFIS used the RV Savannah (2010-11), NOAA Ship Nancy Foster (2010), and NOAA Ship Pisces (2011).
The ichthyoplankton data from the two intensive sampling periods, MARMAP
and GLOBEC, were first used to hindcast recruitment, and were then compared with the virtual population analysis (VPA) recruitment estimates (O'Brien et al.

(Marine Resources Monitoring, Assessment and Prediction) survey off the coast of the southeastern United States.
The members of the MARMAP
program helped with sample collection and processing, and G.
Results of MARMAP
otter trawl investigations in the South Atlantic Bight.
These local, inshore data show that the larvae inhabit waters shallower than those surveyed in the NMFS MARMAP
survey and other well-designed fishery-independent surveys are extremely useful for stock assessments because standardized gears are used with known efforts in documented locations, which constitute a statistically valid experimental design that facilitates comparisons among years, areas, and gear types (Collins and Sedberry, 1991).
For example, during the RV Dolphin cruises, the Marine Resources Monitoring, Assessment, and Prediction (MARMAP
) cruises, and the Southeast Area Monitoring and Assessment Program (SEAMAP) cruises, ichthyoplankton surveys were conducted on the southeast United States continental shelf.
This project was funded by the University of Charleston (South Carolina), The Marine Resources Monitoring, Assessment and Prediction program (MARMAP
), the Cooperative Atlantic States Shark Pupping and Nursery Survey (COASTSPAN), and the W.
