After a terrible 2010 winter, The National Data Buoy Center (NDBC) faced numerous necessary repairs of weather buoys across the eastern seaboard. Through collaboration amongst MARACOOS stakeholders including commercial fishermen, recreational anglers and mariners, the 44066 Texas Tower 4 was re-deployed at the Hudson Canyon and the important coastal 44025 buoy was upgraded to full functionality as of November 10. Montauk buoy 44017 and Nantucket buoy 44008 are currently on the NDBC repair schedule. Offshore data from all of these buoys are critical to fishermen from Massachusetts to New Jersey when planning daily and weekly trips offshore.
