  • Description:
    "The Southeast Fisheries Center, National Marine Fisheries Service has, as one of its responsibilities the role of providing fisheries related data and the analysis of that data in support of fishery management. An important area within that role is data and analyses which provide information on economic aspects of fishery management. The south Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Councils are in the process of submitting a joint plan (Fishery Management Plan, FMP) for the management of species identified as migratory coastal pelagics to the Secretary of Commerce for approval and subsequent imple- mentation. Routinely an economic analysis of the regulations considered in an FMP is performed that estimates the potential effects of the alternative regula- tions. This, of course, was done prior to the Councils' submission of the FMP. However, since the Councils have considered these species sufficiently important to prepare an FMP, the Office of Fishery Management, Southeast Fisheries Center has prepared a report identifying the economic data associated with the species in this FMP (Ward and Poffenberger 1981). The purpose of the analysis herein is to combine the data described in Ward and Poffenberger (1981) in an economic analysis of the mackerel fisheries"--Page 1, paragraph 1.
