In order to address Executive Order 13547 requirements to promote human wellbeing through implementation of ecosystem-based management (EBM), NOAA Fisheries social scientists must collect a broad range of social, cultural, and economic information that is currently unavailable. This research is designed to improve social science data related to the human dimensions of ecosystem-based management and marine spatial planning related to marine and coastal management needs by: (1) Investigating how marine and coastal conditions and management affect human wellbeing; (2) developing and testing theories and methods for defining and measuring human wellbeing within an EBM model; and (3) identifying indicators of wellbeing for use in such a model. This study will focus on marine- and coast-related communities of the US West Coast in order to inform the California Current Integrated Ecosystem Assessment (IEA) VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:18 May 08, 2013 Jkt 229001 ‘‘Resilient and Economically Viable Coastal Communities’’ section. It will assist managers with evaluating how different management strategies may affect the wellbeing of marinedependent and coastal communities beyond commercial harvests and economic conditions, such as in terms of health, cultural values, and social cohesion. Combined with a literature review, interviews and focus groups will assist with identifying salient stakeholder groups and locally meaningful indicators in the study area. A survey will enable researchers to test the validity of the resulting selected suite of indicators with broader samples of each stakeholder group. II. Method of Collection Interview and focus group responses will be collected through audiorecordings, handwritten and typed notes, and simple questionnaires. Survey responses will be collected through paper and/or electronic forms. III. Data OMB Control Number: None. Form Number: None.
