How Much Is Enough? An Essay on the Structure of Fisheries Management Agencies
Many things are disputed in the broad fraternity of fisheries managers and researchers, but one thing they have in common-the conviction that the agency for which they work is less than perfect in its organization and administration. Some may complain that they are hopelessly understaffed and underfunded to do the job that is expected of them. Others may be convinced that there are enough people and funds, but their agency does not use the resources effectively. Many complain about lack of communication; many others about a lack of attention to long-term research. In brief, virtually all see something wrong with the way in which their agency is doing (or not doing) its job.
