Cooperative agreements to USA nonprofit and for-profit organizations, individuals, local, state, and tribal governments, and IHEs for the development of innovative solutions for the fishing industry. Applicants must submit an LOI and ensure that required registrations are completed prior to applying.
The mission of the National Bycatch Reduction Engineering Program (BREP) is to support the development of technological solutions and changes in fishing practices designed to minimize bycatch of fish and protected species (including Endangered Species Act-listed fish, marine mammals, seabirds, and sea turtles) and to reduce impacts to invertebrates (including sponges, deep-sea corals, and shallow (tropical) corals.) In addition, BREP may support projects that quantify post-release mortality and identify ways to minimize mortality and injury of bycaught species (including post-release injury and mortality). Projects should produce outcomes that can directly influence management needs of federally managed living marine resources.
There are five high-priority areas for the Fiscal Year 2022. Proposals must address one of the priorities listed below:
For additional details on the program priorities, see pages 3-5 of the NOFO document in Supporting Documents below.
