At the June 2019 Electronic Monitoring Video Data Management Workshop in Seattle, WA, workshop participants identified terms that come up in EM policy discussions that are not always defined in the same way. As a follow-up action, the workshop steering committee compiled this glossary as a resource for consistent EM terminology. This glossary includes terms commonly used when discussing electronic monitoring (EM) in the context of fisheries management, with a bias towards how terms are used in U.S. fisheries management. This glossary is a living document and the next planned update will be after the February 2020 U.S. National Electronic Monitoring Workshop (West Coast).
The workshop steering committee welcomes your input on the glossary. Here is a GoogleDoc where you can provide comments: Shared EM Glossary.
