Internal MARFIN awarded FY2013Title: U.S. Caribbean Fishery-Independent Survey Workshop: to evaluate extant and novel fishery-independent surveys in the U.S. Caribbean in order to maximize their utility for stock assessment.

Co-PIs: Shannon L. Cass-Calay, William S. Arnold, Jennifer Schull, Meaghan D. Bryan

Tentative Date and Location: Miami, FL September 10-12, 2014 or Sept. 16-18, 2014U.S. Department of Commerce|National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration|NOAA Fisheries|Page 2Specific Objectives:Evaluate the design, data collection methods, etc. of available FI surveys.Explore the utility of surveys with respect to stock assessments.Make near-term and long-term recommendations on how to improve data collection methods to enhance utility for stock assessment.Conduct a cost/benefit analysis to identify action items.
