SSB Mission & Vision


The SSB conducts applied economic and sociocultural research on the use and management of commercial and recreational fisheries, protected species resources, and marine ecosystems. Through its work, the Branch seeks to increase the net benefits derived by the nation from its regional endowment of renewable marine resources.


By 2015, through our independent, relevant, and accessible research that strives to better understand the human dimensions of coastal and marine environments, we will be recognized by our stakeholders as collaborative and relevant contributors to the fisheries and marine ecosystem management decision making process.
