The Population Dynamics and Modeling group conducts analyses in support of the Pacific Fishery Management Council's
Fishery Management Plans for Coastal Pelagics Species and Highly Migratory Species. The group also conducts analyses in support of U.S. participation in the International Scientific Committee for Tuna and Tuna-Like Species in the North Pacific Ocean (ISC), the Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission (IATTC), and the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission (WCPFC). These analyses include stock assessments, sensitivity studies, and development of population models.
