"A Cooperative Research Approach to Ecosystem Based Fisheries Management"

Michael Ball, Study Fleet Program Coordinator,
Northeast Fisheries Center, Woods Hole, MA

The Study Fleet Program, under the Northeast Cooperative Research Program, partners with a subset of commercial fishing vessels to collect high quality, high resolution, self-reported data on fishing effort, area fished, gear characteristics, catch, and biological observations. Data collected from these vessels can be used for a variety of different purposes such as supplementing the stock assessment process, developing real time hot spot avoidance maps for industry, providing detailed food web dynamics information to scientists, and contributing environmental information to habitat modelers. The Study Fleet Program utilizes a variety of technologies to aid in data collection including integrated GPS units, depth sounders, and vessel monitoring systems, wireless temperature and depth loggers, wireless length frequency boards, and the self-reporting Fishery Logbook Data Recording System (FLDRS). Depending on the needs of industry and scientists, FLDRS can be tailored towards s pecific projects including tow-by-tow biological research, the collection of enhanced biological data, and studies pertaining to gear characteristics. With the array of data collected, and ability to provide a dynamic self-reported data system, the Study Fleet Program provides a unique ecosystem based approach to the collection, analysis, and production of industry-dependent data.

The Science Behind Global Policy and Diplomacy

Natalie DeGraaf, Global Public Health Action Network

Innovative science and technology are critical to improving and sustaining development around the globe. Yet, failures in development are not merely problems of delivering these innovations. Too often such efforts fail because we do not appreciate the political, economic, and cultural contexts in which technologies are applied. These contexts shape how science and technology are implemented, potentially constraining their ability to provide solutions to problems of development and sustainability. To do better, we need to understand science and technology as a sociotechnical system, which is itself always situated within a larger sociotechnical order. Policies enacted to address societal concerns must be cognizant of this in order to be effective. Looking to dig into these concepts further, this talk will explore the relationship between science and policy, particularly how science can be used as a tool in global policy; both in advancing agendas and informing sound policy for mulation.
