The CFRF, in partnership with RWU and RI DEM, is launching a Quahog Research Fleet in Narragansett Bay. The survey will involve commercial shellfishermen collecting biological quahog data via bullraking sampling and recording information using Android tablets. Biological data will be used to compare densities to other collection techniques and provide additional information for the quahog stock assessment.
CFRF is currently soliciting Narragansett Bay shellfishermen to join a quahog research fleet. To review the project CLICK HERE.
If you would like to apply to participate in the RI Quahog Research Fleet, please fill out the application and forward either via email, fax or mail to CFRF. To download the vessel application, CLICK HERE. To download the vessel briefing document, CLICK HERE.
Deadline for applications is: June 10, 2016.
