Atlantic Wolffish Tagging Project


The NE Wolffish Tagging Project represents a partnership of scientists and fishermen who research the movements of Atlantic wolffish (Anarhichas lupus) in the southern Gulf of Maine. Over 1,200 Atlantic wolffish have been tagged since 2012. Many of these fish return in following years to the same locations where they were originally tagged.

Past funding has been provided by the NOAA Saltonstall-Kennedy Program and Northeast Consortium.
