Rhode Island Division of Marine Fisheries conducts several field surveys targeting different species, life stages, and spatial areas using a variety of gear types. The data collected from these suveys are used in a variety of ways, from internal stock assessments and management plans, to coast wide stock assessments, academic collaborations, and more.

For more information on our surveys, please take a look at the links below. Additionally, a report is produced annually containing the results of most of these survey, and can be found under our Publications section below under "F-61 Reports."
