Seminar 5/24/17: Dr. James Weinberg, NOAA

Wednesday 24 May 2017 at 3:00pm (in MPR)

Title: “Stock Assessment and Fishery Management in the Mid-Atlantic and New England

Speaker: Dr. James Weinberg, NOAA

This talk will describe the elements of a fishery stock assessment, including data inputs and outputs. I will also describe the pathway in which peer reviewed scientific information is transmitted to managers of federally regulated marine resources. The talk will include case studies of summer flounder and sea scallops which demonstrate the impact of annual recruitment, growth, and optimal harvest schedules on their populations. This is all taking place in a changing ocean environment, marked by higher water temperatures off the east coast of the United States.

Host: Dr. Sook Chung
