This all-volunteer effort is studying the fish population of the Inland Bays at sixteen sites around the three Inland Bays and their tributaries.
Delaware’s Inland Bays are home to over one hundred species of fish. The Inshore Fish Monitoring Survey is a citizen science program that over time will reveal trends in fish populations in the Inland Bays. 2011 was the first year of this long term study.
There are volunteer opportunities on the fish survey both in and out of the water; pulling seine nets, collecting water samples, recording data and assisting with data management. Each team conducts surveys once per month from April through October.

Please note: Any participants under 18 MUST be accompanied by a participating adult at all times.
