About this document
The mission of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is to
understand and predict changes in the Earth's environment and to conserve and manage
coastal and oceanic marine resources and habitats to help meet our Nation's economic,
social, and environmental needs. As a branch of NOAA, the National Marine Fisheries
Service (NMFS) conducts or sponsors research and monitoring programs to improve the
scientific basis for conservation and management decisions. NMFS strives to make
information about the purpose, methods, and results of its scientific studies widely available.
NMFS' Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center (PIFSC) uses the NOAA Technical
Memorandum NMFS series to achieve timely dissemination of scientific and technical
information that is of high quality but inappropriate for publication in the formal peer-
reviewed literature. The contents are of broad scope, including technical workshop
proceedings, large data compilations, status reports and reviews, lengthy scientific or
statistical monographs, and more. NOAA Technical Memoranda published by the PIFSC,
although informal, are subjected to extensive review and editing and reflect sound
professional work. Accordingly, they may be referenced in the formal scientific and
A NOAA Technical Memorandum NMFS issued by the PIFSC may be cited using the
