Population Biology Branch
The NEFSC's Population Biology Branch investigates and documents the biology and ecology of fishes in the western North Atlantic Ocean.
Our products and services focus on growth, reproduction, feeding, and movements of marine fishes.
The branch has programs in Woods Hole, MA (Fishery Biology Program, Food Web Dynamics Program) and Narragansett, RI (Apex Predators Program). To learn more about these programs, click on their links (below).
