Testimony of Sera Drevenak before the Caribbean Fishery Management Council, Jul. 2010

We are enormously supportive of the renewed efforts to collect more data and increase monitoring both federally and at the Territorial level. The requirements to end and prevent overfishing and set fishing limits based on scientific advice have focused renewed attention and resources on data collection efforts in this region. While these efforts will not yield results overnight, we feel that the Territorial governments along with NOAA are taking positive steps forward.
