Filetype[PDF-1.26 MB]

  • Description:
    "The design and implementation of the 'Survey on the Socioeconomic Aspects of Commercial Fishing Vessel Owners in the New England and Mid-Atlantic,' referred to here as Owner Survey, was part of several new and ongoing data collection efforts to support social science research on the region's fisheries.1 Surveys were mailed to 1,400 vessel owners on September 13, 2013. The survey was closed on January 13, 2014 with 160 (141 by mail and 19 online) completed surveys, 10 partially completed, and 6 returned as out of scope as indicated by note via mail, phone call, email, or direct contact with the Social Sciences Branch (SSB) placing the response rate at roughly 11%. This document provides an overview of the survey's development, its implementation, and basic statistical summaries of the questions asked. A companion survey of fishing crew, the 'Survey on the Socioeconomic Aspects of Commercial Fishing Crew in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic' (Crew Survey), was implemented approximately one year prior to the Owner Survey and was documented in a technical memorandum published in September 2014 (Henry and Olson 2014)"--Introduction.
