Relative Distribution and Abundance of goosefish
in the Northwestern Atlantic
Derived from the NEFSC Fall Bottom Trawl Surveys
This shows relative goosefish stock weight and location. Yellow circles indicate goosefish are present, larger circles indicate more goosefish, plus sign (+) indicates sampled area where no goosefish were found.
The information displayed here represents a timeseries collected consistently since 1963.
The Northeast's resource survey constitutes the world's longest and most comprehensive standardized measure of distribution and abundance trends in commercially harvested finfish.
