Ecosystems Decision Tools Workshop

Key Largo, FL - February 14-18, 2005

The purpose of this workshop was to gather an international cadre of fishery scientists and managers to discuss tools available for making fishery management decisions in an ecosystems context. My presentation was intended to describe NE fisheries management, discuss trends relevant to ecosystem approaches, introduce issues that are topical to the NE Council and provide examples of data needs for management in an ecosystem context.
