Implementing a Next Generation Stock Assessment Enterprise: An Update to the NOAA Fisheries Stock Assessment Improvement Plan
Details:
  • Description:
    NOAA’s National Marine Fisheries Service (commonly called NOAA Fisheries, or by the acronym NMFS) conducts stock assessments to provide scientific advice in support of sustainable fisheries management. Managers use the results of stock assessments, along with other information, to establish catch targets and limits that strive to maximize yield while ensuring that overfishing does not occur and stocks do not become overfished. While NOAA Fisheries is currently achieving quality assessments across the country, there are increasing demands and challenges facing NOAA Fisheries’ stock assessment programs. This document updates the Stock Assessment Improvement Plan (SAIP) that NOAA Fisheries published in 2001 (NMFS, 2001), and describes the Next Generation Stock Assessment (NGSA) framework that will be implemented by NOAA Fisheries to address today’s demands and challenges. The advancements made under the direction of the 2001 SAIP have resulted in substantial strides toward achieving the SAIP’s original goal of “Tier II” assessment capability–adequate assessments for core species and baseline monitoring for all managed species. The funding increases provided through the Expand Annual Stock Assessments budget line, have supported growth of the research and the operational aspects of NOAA Fisheries’ stock assessment programs.
