Relative Distribution and Abundance of Ocean quahog
in the Northwestern Atlantic
Derived from the NEFSC Summer Bottom Trawl Surveys
This shows relative quahog stock weight and location. Yellow circles indicate quahogs are present, larger circles indicate more quahogs, plus sign (+) indicates sampled area where no quahogs were found.
The information displayed here represents a timeseries collected consistently since 1982.
The Northeast's resource survey constitutes the world's longest and most comprehensive standardized measure of distribution and abundance trends in commercially harvested finfish.
