The Northeast Fisheries Science Center's Social Science Branch (SSB) is currently conducting a survey of commercial fishing businesses in New England and the Mid-Atlantic states. Commercial fishing business owners were contacted in September 2016 and asked to participate in a voluntary survey about the costs incurred in 2015 by the business. Commercial fishing business owners can either return a paper copy of the survey by mail or take the survey online. Thank you to all the fishing business owners that have already participated in this important survey about the costs your business faces.

For more information about the 2015 survey, please see this sheet of Frequently Asked Questions.
