  • Description:
    "This report of the Tropical Atlantic Biological Laboratory for Fiscal Years 1970 and 1071 (July 1, 1969 through June 30, 1971) is an attempt to summarize the research and related activities of the biologists, oceanographers, and supporting staff members who work at the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) laboratory in Miami, Florida. In early 1970, a reorganization of the Bureau of Commercial Fisheries (then an agency of the Department of the Interior) took place, which had a decided effect on field offices and laboratories. In October 1970, an even more fundamental restructuring of programs followed the establishment of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, under the Department of Commerce. The National Marine Fisheries Service was formed in an amalgamation of the former BCF and the marine fish programs formerly administered by the Bureau of Sport Fisheries, and the new Service placed under the direction of NOAA. The 2-year period covered by this report has been a satisfying one. Tuna-oriented programs instituted several years ago have borne fruit. Significant advances have been made in other existing programs and new ones have been established. High productivity, as measured by the publication of scientific papers, has been maintained in the face of reorienting laboratory programs to new challenges. A fishery research laboratory has a number of responsibilities - a primary reponsibility for developing an understanding of fishery resources; a responsibility to the scientific community for the highest possible level of productivity and competence; a responsibility to the public for efficient use of funds for research; and a responsibility to its staff members for provision of the most stimulating work environment and the opportunity for career development. The extent to which these varied responsibilities are met determines the relative worth of the unit and the significance of its contribution to the national science program. We offer the following summary with the belief that our accomplishments in 1969-1971 were better than average, and with a commitment to continue effective research in the future"--foreword.
