NOAA Fisheries Science Program Reviews

Aquaculture Program Review (2016)

To ensure NOAA achieves its statutory mandates and implements interagency policies effectively, it is necessary to conduct periodic reviews of the scientific programs supporting marine aquaculture. Reviews include science programs at the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Science Centers, National Ocean Service (NOS) and other laboratories, and the Office of Aquaculture (OA). This review is being conducted to:

  • Evaluate the quality, relevance, and performance of research and development supported by NOAA and conducted at NOAA Science Centers and Laboratories (supported by a variety of NOAA budget lines and external funding).
  • Strategically position NOAA in planning effective aquaculture research and development activities.
  • Augment the Office of Aquaculture Strategic Plan.

For background information on NOAA Fisheries aquaculture research, see the NOAA Aquaculture Research Story Maps.

For more information on the program reviews, please contact Mark Rath, Office of Aquaculture Science Coordinator, 301 427 8336.
