Director's Office

The Director’s Office manages and directs the overall activity of the  NOAA Fisheries' Southwest Fisheries Science Center. It guides the Center’s integrated, multidisciplinary research programs in biology, mathematics, oceanography, economics, and computer sciences for the purpose of developing scientific information to support the management and allocation of coastal and high-seas fishery resources. These activities are designed to support the scientific, statistical, and economic needs of the Regional Fishery Management Councils; international commissions for the allocation of worldwide tuna resources; efforts directed toward the reduction of dolphin mortality; protected species and habitat conservation; a better understanding of the biological and environmental factors affecting commercial and recreational fisheries; and the development of aquaculture and underutilized fishery resources.
