Survey for Southern New England Offshore Fishermen

2021 was a banner year for tuna fishing in Southern New England. From a mid-June run of bluefin South of Martha’s Vineyard to the mid-summer tuna frenzy off Block Island, many fishermen enjoyed excellent tuna fishing a relatively short run from the dock. If you were one of those fishermen, please take this survey to aid the research of our friend, Dr. Jeff Kneebone.

As part of his ongoing research on highly migratory species (tuna, billfish, sharks) and offshore wind, he’s created the survey to characterize recreational fishing effort for highly migratory species in southern New England, with focus on the wind energy areas, in 2021.

The colored areas in the above map represent the current offshore wind energy lease areas in southern New England. Contained within and immediately surrounding these lease areas are popular recreational fishing spots for bluefin tuna, mahi,  white marlin, and sharks. If you fish these areas, please take this brief online survey to help researchers gauge how much fishing effort occurs within the wind energy lease areas.
