To this end, the National Research Council Committee on Defining Best Available Science for Fisheries Management (Appendix A) was charged with the difficult task of examining the application of the term “best scientific information available” as the basis for fishery conservation and management measures required under National Standard 2 of the Magnuson-Stevens Act and recommending approaches for the more uniform application of the standard based on the “best scientific information available” for fisheries management.

The committee gave careful consideration throughout this process to keeping its recommendations within the context of current and future fisheries management efforts. Committee members were chosen for their expertise in fisheries science and management. The committee met on two separate occasions to discuss and plan this report. At the first meeting in Seattle, Washington, on July 16-17, 2003, the committee organized a workshop to draw upon additional expertise and points of view on the perceived need for further definition of “best scientific information available” and to explore approaches for improving the application of National Standard 2 in the preparation of fishery management plans.

The workshop was convened in Washington, D.C., on September 8-9, 2003 (Appendix B). At the workshop, the committee and attendees heard keynote presentations and participated in panel discussions on perspectives from regional fisheries management councils, House and Senate subcommittees involved in reauthorization of the Magnuson-Stevens Act, and organizations involved in fisheries-related lawsuits. In breakout groups, participants were asked to comment on how “best scientific information available” should be defined, if a ranking or bar system should be employed to information submitted to councils, and whether it should be codified in law or in guidelines or regulations.

Workshop participants, panels, and discussions helped set the stage for the fruitful committee discussions that followed. The committee also relied on written comments provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA’s) regional fisheries science centers and regional fishery management councils responding to an e-mail questionnaire on how they interpret best science to develop fishery management plans (Appendix C).
