a variety of scientific activities

HIGH QUALITY SCIENCE is fundamental to NOAA as a science-based agency. NOAA Fisheries conducts objective peer reviews of scientific activities in major programs at its Science Centers on a regular basis using agreed-upon criteria. The purpose of the reviews is to maximize the transparency and effectiveness of major science programs located at the six Science Centers as well as those located in or coordinated through NMFS Headquarters.

In 2016, the objectives of these reviews are to examine and evaluate our science programs that are directed to provide information relative to the management, protection and restoration of resilient and productive ecosystems. At the Alaska Fisheries Science Center’s 2016 review, an independent review panel will learn about the ecosystem science information needs, priorities, and research activities that are relevant to current programs.  The review panel will consider materials provided by the Alaska Fisheries Science Center and will provide input on ways to improve the quality of ecosystem science programs. 

To conduct the reviews, a panel of experts in the topic area who are not associated with the Alaska Fisheries Science Center was selected.  During a week-long review, the panel of reviewers will see presentations and have time to discuss the state of the science with management and staff, take public comments, and prepare individual review reports and recommendations.
