Fish Stock Assessments: Prioritization and Funding
Anne-Marie Fennell (au)
U.S. marine fisheries contribute over $100 billion annually to the American economy and provide recreational fishing opportunities to millions of Americans. To continue enjoying these benefits, the Nat. Oceanic and Atmospheric Admin. (NOAA) manages marine fish stocks to ensure their sustainable use. NOAA's National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) is responsible for fishery conservation and management, including fish stock assessments to estimate the size of the population of a fish stock and to examine whether a stock is overfished and provide support for management measures. This report (1) identifies differences in the number and frequency of fish stock assessments conducted by NMFS' regional fisheries science centers and the causes of those differences; (2) identifies how NMFS sets priorities for conducting fish stock assessments; (3) determines the funding NMFS receives annually for conducting fish stock assessments; and (4) determines how NMFS makes funding decisions to support fish stock assessments. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
