How NMFS Uses GIS

Stock Assessment

One of the most important information sources for stock assessments are living marine resource surveys. GIS is used for planning these surveys and for interpreting results. Surveys and biological studies provide data on species distribution, life history, migration patterns, diet and behavior that are fundamental to responding to all of NOAA Fisheries' mandates.
