The 15th Annual Report to Congress on the Status of Stocks for 2011: A record number of rebuilt fisheries 


NOAA’s Fisheries Services released the 15th annual report to Congress on the nation’s Status of Stocks.  More than any previous year, the Status of Stocks Report for 2011 underscores the strength of the science-based management process and demonstrates we are actively turning the corner on ending overfishing and rebuilding our nationa’s fisheries.  A record number of stocks were declared rebuilt in 2011, with a decrease in both categories of overfishing and overfished determinations.  To read more, go to  Status of Stocks 2011 , where you can download a pdf of the report and related informational materials and links.
