Amy M. Schueller, Ph.D.
Dr. Amy Schueller is a Research Fish Biologist at the NOAA's Southeast Fisheries Science Center in Beaufort, North Carolina, USA. She is the lead assessment analyst for Atlantic menhaden and Gulf menhaden, two small pelagic species that combined support the 2nd largest fishery in the U.S. She was part of a team that developed ecological reference points for management of Atlantic menhaden. These ecological reference points resulted in catch advice for the fishery that accounted for predatory needs. Her research focuses on forage fish dynamics, spatial stock assessments, ecosystem reference points, and any science that supports improving the menhaden assessments. Amy received her Ph.D. in Fisheries and Wildlife from Michigan State University in 2009.
