The Southeast Fisheries Science Center supports various research projects geared toward improving single-species stock assessments and exploring ecosystem-based approaches to fisheries management.  The primary goal of this work is to improve fish stock assessments and management advice for various management bodies in the Southeastern U.S. region.  Associates are invited to develop new research projects or join current efforts.  Examples of current research topics include: environmental and ecological effects on stock dynamics, biophysical models of recruitment, integrated ecosystem assessments, and management strategy evaluation.
