Winter Bottom Trawl Survey

The standardized NEFSC Winter Bottom Trawl Survey was initiated in 1992 and covered offshore areas from the Mid-Atlantic to Georges Bank. Inshore strata were covered from 1992-2007 but were later dropped, as few flatfish of interest were captured. Deep strata (183-366 m) were not covered consistently until 1998.
