Groundfish Analysis Team

The Groundfish Analysis Team supports essential needs of the NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service and the Pacific Fishery Management Council  (The previous link is a link to Non-Federal government web site. Click to review NOAA Fisheries disclaimer.) (PFMC) for information on commercial and recreational groundfish species. The Team is made up of two overlapping sub-teams, one focusing on stock assessments, and the other focusing on surveys, ecosystem assessment, and fishery-oceanography. Team members have actively participated on the PFMC Groundfish Management Team since its inception in 1977, and over the years have made many significant contributions in the form of stock assessments, development of new methods, evaluation of alternative management procedures, and at-sea collection and processing of important data on fisheries.

Team members also provide support for the California Cooperative Port Sampling Program with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission.
