Description: This recently released report by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is an annual report required by a congressional mandate "emphasizing the need to prevent overfishing and to rebuild depressed fish stocks." Although addressing the human impacts on the nation's fisheries is an enormous task, this report indicates success in recent years. The number of fish stocks that have sustainable harvest rates has increased 45 percent since 1999, and sustainable stocks rose by 1/3. The text of the report itself is only 9 pages long, but it focuses on a number of tables and includes appendices with background information -- all of which can be viewed online.
