This work will build on our previous investigations in the Gulf of Maine recreational groundfish fishery that evaluated the consequences of capture, handling, and release on the health and survival of both Atlantic cod and haddock.

Therefore, throughout the 2018 fishing season, both species will be captured on recreational fishing vessels and assessed for a variety of factors known to influence health and survival from our previous work. Such results will help identify the most advisable terminal tackle types for management and anglers to use to reduce such detrimental impacts. Given the variety of angler experience levels and fishing practices seen in this fishery, we will also distribute a survey to understand perceptions, behaviors, and motivations of anglers targeting cod and haddock. Results will not only provide insight into angler backgrounds and practices but also the best ways to communicate recommended terminal tackle types to the community.

We work pioneer new technologies and methodologies that address these data deficiencies and provide timely answers to pivotal management and conservation questions.    The cornerstone of FSET research is our innovative use of cutting-edge technology. Our electronic tagging technologies'including acoustic and satellite telemetry and high-resolution acceleration data loggers'allow us to achieve unprecedented insight into the lives of marine species and to explore novel approaches to significant issues. Also integral to FSET's success are the strong relationships we have forged with industry partners within commercial and recreational fisheries, as well as state and federal management entities. By working side-by-side with our fishing industry partners, we greatly enhance the objectivity and applicability of our research, and facilitate the translation of our findings into responsible fishing practices. Our close connection to management bodies also ensures the rapid incorporation of our results into fisheries management and conservation processes and policies.
