Fisheries Technical Briefs

Fisheries Technical Briefs summarize key findings and provide interpretation of DEC fisheries surveys. They are primarily written for technical audiences, but non-technical audiences may also gain a deeper understanding of a fishery by reading the briefs. The Technical Briefs listed here are from recent surveys conducted by Regional Fisheries units. A fisheries dictionary is available to help readers understand the technical information in these reports.
