Investigation of intra-seasonal to multi-decadal variability in South Florida rainfall

Alberto M. Mestas-Nũnez & David B. Enfield
We investigated different climatic factors affecting South Florida (climate divisions 4, 5 and 6) precipitation. The climatic indexes used here are based on over a century of global sea surface temperature anomalies. The climatic associations are studied for different seasons and in three frequency bands (intra-seasonal, inter-annual and decadal). We found that the known ENSO relationship for winter/spring (wetter than normal South Florida rainfall anomalies during El Niño) does not hold during the summer. We...

Are the 2012 allocations of gag, red, and black grouper in the Gulf of Mexico economically efficient?

Juan J. Agar &
This report investigates the economic efficiency of the current allocation of red, gag and black grouper between the commercial and recreational fishing sectors in the Gulf of Mexico. Our results suggest that the 2012 allocations are not economically efficient because the willingness to pay for an additional unit of quota differs between these sectors. However, the magnitude of the reallocation and the extent to which societal benefits can be increased can only be confidently determined...

Report of a GCFI workshop

Nancie Cummings, Mandy Karnauskas, William L. Michaels & Alejandro Acosta
A special theme session and workshop on data-limited assessment methods were held at the 66th annual conference of the Gulf and Caribbean Fisheries Institute (GCFI) in Corpus Christi, Texas during November 4-8, 2013. Contributors to the GCFI special session provided presentations on a variety of analytical approaches that can be applied to data-limited stock assessments of living marine resources in the wider Caribbean region, and other similarly under-sampled locales (Executive Summary)

Final report for the Assessment Methods Working Group summarizing the Domestic Shark P* Standardization Workshop

Dean L. Courtney, Enric Cortés & Xinsheng Zhang
A three day workshop was held June 11–13, 2013 in Panama City, Fla. to investigate P* statistical analysis techniques for use in age-structured stock assessments of U.S. domestic shark stocks managed under the consolidated Atlantic Highly Migratory Species (HMS) Fisheries Management Plan (FMP) (Appendix A). The workshop proceedings are summarized in this report. During the workshop, several shortcuts to published P* approaches were discussed that are currently being implemented or evaluated within the framework of...

World ocean database 2013.

The oceanographic databases described by this atlas series expands on the World Ocean Database 2009 (WOD09) product and its predecessors. We have expanded by including substantial amounts of both recent and historical data not previously available. Earlier NODC/WDC oceanographic databases, and products derived from these databases, have proven to be of great utility to the international oceanographic, climate research, and operational environmental forecasting communities. In particular, the objectively analyzed fields of temperature and salinity derived...

Observer coverage of the 2013 Gulf of Mexico skimmer trawl fishery

Jeffrey R. Pulver, Elizabeth Scott-Denton & Jo A. Williams
The specific objectives of this paper are to: 1) summarize trip, vessel, environmental, and gear characteristics; 2) quantify fish and protected species captures ; and 3) estimate catch per unit of effort (CPUE) trends and spatial distribution for target and nontarget species, excluding protected species. (Introduction)

Crew injuries and fatalities, employment estimates, and casualty rates in the Gulf of Mexico commercial fisheries.

Akbar B. Marvasti
In this report, first the review of the literature provides a background for studies of occupational injuries in the commercial fishing industry. Then, the status of occupational injuries and fatalities in commercial fishery is explained. Next, historical data on the number of accidents in the commercial fishery in the GOM are presented followed by the construction of the full-time equivalent (FTE) employment for selected groups of fisheries. Based on these data, the historical rates of...

Is the 2012 allocation of red snapper in the Gulf of Mexico economically efficient?

Juan J. Agar &
This report investigates the economic efficiency of the current allocation of red snapper between the commercial and recreational fishing sectors in the Gulf of Mexico. Our results suggest that the 2012 allocations are not economically efficient because the net benefit for an additional unit of quota at the margin differs between these sectors. However, the magnitude of the reallocation and the extent to which national economic benefits can be increased can only be confidently determined...

NN-TSV, NCEP neural network training and validation system

V. M. Krasnopolʹsky
This Note describes neural network (NN) training and validation system (TVS) or NN-TVS developed at NCEP (EMC). Section 1 of this Note is an introductory section. Section 2 presents a brief NN tutorial containing limited discussion of basic ideas of NN technique and NN features implemented in the NN-TVS system. Some of the NN features discussed in Section 2 have not yet been implemented in the NN-TVS system and are expected to be implemented in...

Catch and bycatch in U.S. Southeast gillnet fisheries, 2013.

, Bethany M. Deacy, Michelle Passerotti &
The Southeast Gillnet Observer Program has adapted to the changes of the Florida- Georgia shark gillnet fishery since the program began in 1993 (e.g. Carlson and Bethea 2007 and references therein, Mathers et al. 2013). There are currently about 500 total directed and incidental shark permits issued in the US Atla ntic and Gulf of Mexico, while the number of gillnet fishers changes from year to year. Gillne t effort targeting large coastal (LCS) and...

World ocean atlas 2013. Volume 3, Dissolved oxygen, apparent oxygen utilization, and oxygen saturation

Hernan E. Garcia, Timothy P. Boyer, Ricardo A. Locarnini, John I. Antonov, Alexey V. Mishonov, Olga K. Baranova, Melissa M. Zweng, James R. Reagan & Daphne R. Johnson
This atlas consists of a description of data analysis procedures and horizontal maps of climatological distribution fields of dissolved oxygen, apparent oxygen utilization (AOU), and dissolved oxygen saturation at selected standard depth levels of the world ocean on a one-degree latitude-longitude grid. The aim of the maps is to illustrate large-scale characteristics of the distribution of dissolved oxygen. The oceanographic data fields used to generate these climatological maps were computed by objective analysis of all...
