The assessment is independently peer reviewed at the Review Workshop. The product of the Review Workshop is a summary documenting panel opinions regarding the strengths and weaknesses of the stock assessment and input data. Participants for SEDAR Workshops are appointed by the Councils, NOAA SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 43049 Fisheries Southeast Regional Office, and the NOAA Southeast Fisheries Science Center.
