  • Description:
    "This document represents the findings of an independent peer review of a report commissioned by the New England Fishery Management Council (NEFMC) for independent expert advice on setting an excessive share limit in the Northeast Multispecies fishery. Three reviewers were provided by the Center for Independent Experts (CIE); 1 was contracted independently by the NEFMC, and the Chair was a member of the NEFMC's Science and Statistical Committee. The CIE provides scientific expertise to conduct independent scientific peer reviews for National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) based on specific Terms of Reference (TORs) provided to the reviewers. The Chair coordinated the production of the summary report but did not contribute an independent review. The review was coordinated by the NMFS Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NEFSC). The CIE, NEFSC, and NEFMC all consider the purpose of an independent review to be to examine the scientific merit of reports and not to make policy recommendations. The report being reviewed, Recommendations for Excessive-Share Limits in the Northeast Multispecies Fishery, was prepared for the NEFMC by Glenn Mitchell and Steven Peterson on behalf of Compass Lexecon (Appendix A). The review panel met at the Hawthorne Hotel in Salem, MA on June 12 and 13, 2014 to conduct a public review of the report, to accept public comment, and to question the consultants who prepared the report"--Preface.
