NEFSC Ecosystems Surveys Branch

Cruise Results

The purpose of cruise results are to describe the purpose, methods used, personnel who participated, and a summary of the total number of samples collected for various government and university investigators during the Ecosystem Surveys Branch's seasonal bottom trawl, shrimp, surf clam and scallop resource cruises.

With the arrival of the research vessel Henry B. Bigelow in late 2007, the WBTS was merged with the Spring Bottom Trawl Survey and discontinued. Therefore, the last available WBTS cruise results are from 2007.
