Relative Distribution and Abundance of redfish
in the Northwestern Atlantic
Derived from the NEFSC Fall Bottom Trawl Surveys
This shows relative redfish stock weight and location. Yellow circles indicate redfish are present, larger circles indicate more redfish, plus sign (+) indicates sampled area where no redfish 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.
