Excerpt from Oceanology, Vol. 2: Biology of the Ocean Under the National Marine Fisheries Services mission to "Achieve a continued optimum utilization of living resources for the benefit of the Nation," the Northeast Fisheries Center (NEFC) is responsible for planning, developing, and managing multidisciplinary programs of basic and applied research to: (1) better understand the living marine resources (including marine mammals) of the Northwest Atlantic, and the environmental quality essential for their existence and continued productivity; and (2) describe and provide to management, industry, and the public, options for the utilization and conservation of living marine resources and maintenance of environmental quality which are consistent with national and regional goals and needs, and with international commitments. The timely need for such information by decision makers often precludes publication in formal journals. The NOAA Technical Memorandum NMFS-F/NEC series provides a relatively quick and highly visible outlet for documents prepared by NEFC authors, or similar material prepared by others for NEFC purposes, where formal review and editorial processing are not appropriate or feasible. However, documents within this series reflect sound professional work and can be referenced in formal journals. Any use of trade names within this series does not imply endorsement. Copies of this and other NOAA Technical Memorandums are available from the National Technical Information Service, 5285 Port Royal Rd., Springfield, Va 22161. Recent issues of NOAA Technical Memorandum NMFS-F/NEC are noted below: 18.
