    "The Center for Independent Experts (CIE) provided three individuals to evaluate a report (the Excessive Shares Report) commissioned by the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) for setting an excessive share limit in catch share fisheries, and more specifically, the Surfclam and Ocean Quahog ITQ fishery. The CIE provides scientific expertise to conduct independent scientific peer reviews for NMFS based on specific Terms of Reference (TOR's) provided to the reviewers. Both the CIE and the NMFS Office of Science and Technology consider the purpose of the CIE review to be to examine the scientific merit of reports, and not to make policy recommendations. The three CIE reviewers chosen for this study were Dr. Ani Katchova, University of Kentucky, Dr. Ragnar Arnason, University of Iceland, and Dr. Rigeberto Lopez, University of Connecticut. Dr. James Wilen, University of California-Davis was the Mid-Atlantic Council Scientific and Statistical (SSC) Committee representative who chaired the meeting. The panel met June 21-23, 2011 in Falmouth and Woods Hole, MA to conduct a public review of the report, to accept public comment, and to question the consultants who prepared the report"--Executive summary.
