  • Description:
    "This report documents 10 years (2001-2011) of the IGP at the NWFSC. During that time, the IGP distributed over $2M in awards, to almost 60 different scientists, for projects covering a wide range of topics and organisms. Information presented in this report shows that the IGP was successful in meeting its varied objectives (which are detailed in the next section). For example, IGP seed money generated almost nine times as much in spin-off grants, as well as a large number of tangible products such as peer-reviewed publications and scientific presentations. The program also boosted staff morale and substantially contributed to career development, especially for junior scientists. A number of IGP-funded projects have produced information that has directly affected management decisions by NMFS and the broader scientific community. In 2012, faced with a sharply eroding budget, the Center suspended the IGP. This hiatus provided an opportune time to take stock of the program, review what it has accomplished, and identify challenges that remain. This report provides empirical information that can be used to make informed decisions about the future of the IGP or similar programs. For a relatively small investment, programs like this could be replicated at all NMFS Science Centers"--Introduction. [doi:10.7289/V5/TM-NWFSC-131 (http://dx.doi.org/10.7289/V5/TM-NWFSC-131)]
