The Southeast Regional Office (SERO) Fisheries Social Science Branch conducts applied research, analysis, and data collection on the use and management of living marine resources.  This includes the use of existing fisheries data bases, field research and data collection, and interdisciplinary collaboration (with staff from other NOAA Fisheries regions and centers, fishery management councils, state fisheries agencies, universities, and contractors).  For specific regulatory policies, actions, and alternatives, the work is conducted, summarized, reviewed and published by the councils and NOAA Fisheries in accord with existing federal requirements and guidelines.
