The Commercial Fisheries Research Foundation (CFRF) and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) launched the Shelf Research Project in October 2014. A fleet of nine fishing vessels have been collecting oceanographic data from across the continental shelf, using Conductivity, Temperature, and Depth instruments (CTDs) to conduct water column profiles.
Today we are pleased to announce that our fleet has collected over 200 profiles! We at CFRF and our partners at WHOI appreciate the hard work of our fleet to collect this data.
