Agenda

    The Gulf of Mexico, South Atlantic, and Caribbean Fishery 
Management Councils, in conjunction with NOAA Fisheries and the 
Atlantic and Gulf States Marine Fisheries Commissions, have implemented 
the Southeast Data, Assessment and Review (SEDAR) process, a multi-step 
method for determining the status of fish stocks in the Southeast 
Region. SEDAR is a three-step process including: (1) Data Workshop; (2) 
Assessment Process utilizing Webinars; and (3) Review Workshop. The

evaluates potential datasets and recommends which datasets are 
appropriate for assessment analyses. The product of the Assessment 
Process is a stock assessment report which describes the fisheries, 
evaluates the status of the stock, estimates biological benchmarks, 
projects future population conditions, and recommends research and 
monitoring needs. The assessment is independently peer reviewed at the 
Review Workshop. The product of the Review Workshop is a Summary
