2022 Great Annual Fish Count


REEF
Register Now!

Join us on 7/23/22 for our 19th year hosting the event! You can help count fish and win prizes! This year, we are proud to be a REEF Conservation Partner

Each year divers help researchers by surveying fish populations. This is done by identifying what fish you see on a dive. We will have several sites set up with coordinators that morning; but All Dives in July count toward the GAFC raffle. After the dives, we gather at Stage Fort Park in Gloucester for raffle prizes and a BBQ!

This data helps researchers and policy-makers so remember to count fish on every dive!

You must register for the event AND submit a survey in order to be eligible for the raffle prizes. Only one raffle entry per diver (so multiple dives don't give multiple raffle entries).

We are looking for help at the event. If you would like to coordinate a site, email Greg, or to help out at the event, email Victoria. If you want to donate prizes for the raffle, email Uma.
