DEC Releases Technical Briefs on New York State Fisheries

Briefs Highlight Key Findings from Recent Fisheries Surveys

New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Commissioner Basil Seggos today announced that technical briefs summarizing key findings and interpretation of DEC fisheries surveys are now available for public review.

"DEC's experienced and dedicated fisheries staff conduct hundreds of surveys annually to collect data on New York's fisheries," said Commissioner Seggos. "The outcomes of large-scale research projects have always resulted in comprehensive reports, but do not document the full scope of our work. DEC will collect and analyze data from all of our fisheries surveys to create these technical briefs, which will be used to inform science-based fisheries management decisions."

Although written for technical audiences, such as fisheries professionals, these briefs are now available so the public can gain a deeper understanding of New York's fisheries and DEC's work managing the State's aquatic resources. Anglers will find many of the briefs useful with information such as species presence, size distribution, and relative abundance for sportfish populations.

The technical briefs will be developed for most fisheries surveys conducted since 2017. Currently, 16 technical briefs are available and additional briefs will be posted regularly as surveys are completed and analyzed.

Fisheries Technical Briefs are now available on DEC's website.
