Report to Congress on Status of the Stocks Filed

NOAA's Fisheries Service released the 15th annual report to Congress on the nation's Status of Stocks. More than any a 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 nation's fisheries. A record number of stocks were declared rebuilt in 2011, with a decrease in both categories of overfishing and overfished determinations.
