Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: The survey occupied xx stations on the inner shelf off the South Shore coast and northern Cape Cod Bay (the areas previously surveyed with geophysics in cruises FA 06012, FA 07001, and FA 07002). Photographic data were collected at 183 stations; grab samples were collected at 128 stations. Seventeen vibracores were collected, ranging up to 4.2 m long.
