Annual Meeting

All current fellows are asked to attend an annual meeting. Traditionally the meeting takes place in April/May and is located at one of the NMFS Science Center laboratories (there are 6 Science Centers in the US and each has multiple laboratories). It is also useful to have the meeting at or near a state Sea Grant program, allowing for both Sea Grant and NMFS participation.

In 2013 the meeting was held at the Northeast Fisheries Science Center’s Woods Hole laboratory (Woods Hole, MA). This particular site is the oldest NMFS laboratory in the United States and has both a large population dynamics branch and social science branch.

A copy of the 2013 Annual Program includes an overall agenda, a list of participating fellows and their dissertation abstracts

Selection of New Fellows

Once application materials have been received two technical expert review panels are appointed – one for each discipline. The panels review and rate all applications. As a result, in May/June, a new set of selected fellows is announced.

The fellows selected for 2013 are listed below
