Item Identification

Title: SEFIS Database
Short Name: Southeast Fishery Independent Survey Microsoft Access Database
Status: In Work
Abstract:

This is a fishery-independent survey that collects data on reef fish in southeast US waters using multiple gears, including chevron traps, video cameras, ROVs, longlines, and acoustics. This project is also collecting information on hardbottom habitats using video cameras, ROVs, and acoustics gears.

Purpose:

To (1) increase the spatial footprint and sample sizes of fishery-independent sampling in southeast US waters (2) add video cameras as a survey gear to address trap selectivity issues and to develop annual indices off abundance for species that avoid traps (3) map hardbottom habitats using multibeam sonar to improve survey design (4) use remotely operated underwater vehicles (ROVs) to visually assess broad- and fine-scale habitat and red snapper densities and sizes in continental shelf-break waters (5) perform research to inform survey methods and to address critical management issues, including an ongoing assessment of fisheries (split-beam) sonar as a fishery-independent survey tool, and longline surveys to assess patterns in red snapper distribution and abundance.
