Funded Research Projects: FE

Evaluation of U.S. Pacific Fishery Ecosystem Plan

Research Sponsored By: Pew Charitable Trusts
Principal Investigator: Phillip Levin
Project Description
The purpose of this project is to produce a scientific manuscript for submission to a peer-reviewed publication that evaluates/benchmarks the current Pacific FEP against recently established and published best practices, in particular the incorporation of measurable objectives. This new research will provide the scientific rationale and justification for our campaign’s effort to secure action from the PFMC to develop and incorporate such objectives into the Pacific FEP through the upcoming 5-year review currently scheduled for March 2018.
