Southeast Fishery-Independent Survey (PC1402, ME70)

Metadata Updated: June 9, 2023

The Southeast Fishery-Independent Survey (SEFIS) was created by the National Marine Fisheries Service in 2010 and operates out of the NOAA Beaufort Laboratory. The survey conducts fishery-independent sampling and related applied research, focusing on the assessment of spatial variability in distribution and abundance of marine fish species within the snapper-grouper complex, via data collected from fish traps, video cameras, and acoustics. The NOAA ship Pisces departed Morehead city on 5 July 2014 for a SEFIS research cruise in continental shelf and shelf-break waters off the southeastern U.S. During this survey, 227 sq km of multibeam data were collected from 48 discrete areas between 33.5 Deg N and 35.0 Deg N. A total of 391 concomitant trap-camera samples were collected.
