Every year, DMF conducts trawl surveys in state coastal waters. The surveys determine the fish stocks condition and how to manage fisheries and protect fishery resources, among other things. 

Our Spring Trawl Survey will begin on May 7th. We will be providing updates as tows are completed.

Thank you to all fixed-gear fishermen for moving your gear while the survey takes place in your fishing area!
