Each spring and fall, MarineFisheries conducts trawl surveys throughout Massachusetts coastal waters. These surveys have been conducted each May and September since 1978, and are used to determine the condition of fish stocks, evaluate how construction activities affect fishing and the environment, and how best to manage fisheries and protect fishery resources. Check back here to see where the trawl survey has been completed.

The next trawl survey will begin May 2015. To better assist fixed-gear fishermen of the Commonwealth, this page will be updated daily during the Spring Trawl. Updates will include where the survey occurred that day. Updates will also be posted on Twitter through our handle, @MassDMF.
