WELCOME! This blog will record the activities of a group of fishermen, scientists, members of the aquaculture industry, and fisheries managers who are collaborating in research designed to find ways to protect and enhance the winter flounder and its fishery. The project is based at the University of New Hampshire and includes sites in Massachusetts.
The purpose of this research project is to initiate a regional winter flounder restocking effort following the "responsible approach" guidelines in two locations (Martha's Vineyard, M.A. and East Hampton, N.Y.). This project is a regional collaborative effort that includes fishermen, scientists, the aquaculture industry, and fisheries managers who will engage in research to find ways to protect and enhance the winter flounder and its fishery.
