Item Identification

Title: Population and Ecosystems Monitoring and Analysis Division (PEMAD)
Short Name: Population and Ecosystems Monitoring and Analysis Division (PEMAD)
Status: In Work

The Populations and Ecosystems Monitoring and Analysis Division collects samples and data from fishery resources and the environment. These collections create data streams used throughout the NEC, and by external users, to assess the status and trends of fishery resources and the dynamics of the ecological processes that control resource productivity.

The scale of the Division's activities also make it a laboratory for development of QA/QC best practices and for application of advanced technologies in marine ecosystem monitoring.

Finally, Division scientists provide relevant advice and information to living marine resource managers at the regional, national, and international levels.
