Get Ready for the GAFC!

The 14th Annual Great Annual Fish Count is coming up on July 18th. Each year divers help researchers by surveying fish populations. This is done by identifying what fish you see on a dive. After the dive, we gather at Stage Fort Park in Gloucester, for raffle prizes and a BBQ!

Last year we had a great turnout - 79 divers and 13 volunteers at the event. There was a total of 85 surveys turned from 14 dive sites. In total, divers counted 67 species of fish and invertebrates!

Join the largest survey in North America! Multiple dive locations and fabulous raffle prizes!

There are seveal ways to learn to identify New England species:
