Specifications

Specifications include, but are not limited to:DMR is seeking to award a contract with one (1) vessel to survey federal waters of the NGOM scallop management area from Stellwagen Bank off Gloucester, MA to Machias Seal Island, ME. Areas to be surveyed will be based on information collected from fishermen, previous scallop surveys, and historically fished beds. Specific areas to be targeted include Stellwagen Bank, Ipswich Bay, Platts Bank (New Ledge), Machias Seal Island and potentially Mt. Desert Rock. The survey will be revised during the course of the survey in order to concentrate survey effort on areas of high initial variability. The survey dredge is an unlined seven (7) ft. wide chain sweep with a series of rock chains and a ring bag made up of 2 inch rings. The 2016 survey will begin in May and take up to 22 days at sea to complete. The contracted vessel will be expected to be able to perform the survey during this time. A survey schedule will be determined by the Department based on available vessel days and in consultation with contracted captain. DMR will determine the locations of the approximately 200 sites in the survey. A determination as to whether the location can be dragged will be made jointly by the Departments lead scientist and the captain. Alternate sites will be available as needed. Length of tow will be determined by GPS and vessel speed at each station. DMR will provide up to two scientific/support staff for the survey. The crew will operate the fishing gear and assist with sorting, weighing, and measuring the catch. The work will be directed by DMR and University of Maine personnel
