Socio-Economic Survey of Hired Captains and Crew in New England and Mid-Atlantic Commercial Fisheries

Metadata Updated: March 8, 2024

The Northeast Fisheries Science Center's Social Sciences Branch (SSB) completed the second wave of a survey of crew, including hired captains, participating in commercial fisheries in the New England and Mid-Atlantic regions. This survey is a follow-up to the baseline survey wave collected in 2012-2013. During late 2018 and early 2019, NEFSC staff conducted interviews with commercial fishing vessel crew and hired captains at ports from Maine to North Carolina. Interviewers asked respondents questions regarding their demographic background, the availability of work, and fishing trip characteristics, among other topics of interest related to employment in commercial fishing.
