Fish Stock Assessment Quarterly Reports

NOAA Fisheries provides stock assessment advice in support of fishery status determinations, setting annual catch limits, and management of sustainable fisheries. Information on the percentage of the 230 Fish Stock Sustainability Index (FSSI; selected for their importance to commercial and recreational fisheries) stocks with adequate assessments is tracked on a quarterly and annual basis in order to measure performance of the national stock assessment program. Adequate assessments are conducted using production models or better, have been validated by a regional review, and are no more than five years old.
