Greater Atlantic Region Policy Series Mission

NOAA Fisheries Greater Atlantic Region policy analysts routinely develop documents, including policy analyses, white papers, case studies, workshop proceedings, and position papers, to support their stewardship and management activities.

The mission of the Greater Atlantic Region Policy Series is to provide centralized, public access to NOAA Fisheries policy documents beyond those required by statute.

This series complements existing NOAA Fisheries scientific publications currently available to the public through the NOAA Fisheries Scientific Publication Office and regional Science Centers.
