Helping Fishermen, Scientists and Managers Sustain Wild Fisheries

New Hampshire commercial and recreational fishermen are struggling to stay on the water while conserving marine resources as required by fisheries management. The UNH Sustainable Fisheries and Aquaculture Program supports these efforts by partnering with fishermen, scientists and managers in projects that improve fishermen’s ability to:

  • catch abundant species while avoiding overfished stocks
  • sell what they can catch at a fair price
  • improve fisheries science and management strategies.
