Status of Stocks: Report on the Status of U.S. Fisheries

Source: U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

From the publication web page:

NOAA Fisheries releases the 15th Annual Report to Congress on the Status of the Nation’s Fisheries. This report documents our national journey toward ending overfishing and rebuilding the nation’s fisheries.

Since 1997, this annual report to Congress identifies the status of our managed stocks and complexes. It provides a 'snap-shot' in time of where our nation’s fisheries were at the end of 2011 in relation to their thresholds of overfishing and overfished. This report does not capture the dynamic nature of sustainability and the many factors that may influence a fishery and require harvests to be adjusted. The strength of the U.S. science-based model for managing fisheries relies on stock assessments to monitor populations and a management system that adjusts harvest levels accordingly. It is this iterative process between science and management that for years has worked in many fisheries around the country.

    Reed Smith's national manager of research services, John DiGilio, returns to FreePint to review some of the most popular mobile applications for legal research. As smart technology infiltrates the practice of law, research is becoming increasingly untethered and being conducted more on-the-go than onsite. John takes a hard and practical look at the apps that are disrupting and transforming the way attorneys conduct research. By applying the same stringent criteria across to each review, he hopes to empower librarians and information professionals to lead the transition to mobile rather than being caught behind its curve.
