Socio-economic Survey of Commercial Fishing Crew in the Northeast

The Northeast Fisheries Science Center's Social Sciences Branch (SSB) completed a survey of crew, including hired captains, participating in commercial fisheries in the New England and Mid-Atlantic regions. The purpose of the survey effort was to collect data that would contribute to the development of fisheries performance measures, with a emphasis on collecting data for social performance measures in the areas of governance, stewardship, and well-being. The survey began in October 2012 and concluded in 2013. Commercial fishing vessel crew were intercepted at several selected fishing ports from the region, and asked to participate in the survey. Participating crew members were interviewed orally using a standardized set of survey questions, with the interview entering the crew member's responses on a hand held tablet. By the close of the survey, 400 interviews were completed.
