Appendix F
Compilation of Science Center and Management Council Reports and Committees

The following is a compilation of regional fisheries science centers and the committees that conduct stock assessment and peer review, and the fishery management councils they support and the committees and panels that provide advice. Stock assessment workshops are run primarily by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Fisheries scientists and staff with input from council staff and a variety of stakeholders in the particular fishery. NOAA scientists (or sometimes paid consultants) conduct the assessments. Peer review is first managed by NOAA Fisheries for internal and external review before assessments are submitted to the councils. After submission, the council’s advisory bodies review assessments and other reports and provide input.
