The National Marine Fisheries Service / Northeast Fisheries Science Center maintains this research site in collaboration with the Monkfish fishing industry. Since October, commercial fishers and researchers have been working to improve information about the distribution, size, and condition of the Monkfish population. The Website includes introductory information about monkfish and the project (see Press Releases, Monkfish Research, and Monkfish FAQs), cruise instructions for participating vessels, vessel positions for numerous legs of the research, distributional range of monkfish in North America, and preliminary data from cruises. Also provided are numerous links to further information.
