DURHAM, New Hampshire (AP) - A University of New Hampshire-based group is funding three research projects that will focus on spawning groundfish in New England waters.

Groundfish include species such as cod and haddock that have high economic value. The three awards from the Northeast Consortium total more than $335,000.

Some of the money will pay for a mapping study of spawning cod on Georges Bank. Another project will be an acoustic and trawl survey of winter-spawning cod in Ipswich Bay off of Massachusetts. The other project will focus on winter flounder spawning offshore in the Gulf of Maine.

The Northeast Consortium includes representatives from the University of New Hampshire, University of Maine, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
