Abstract

The principal goals of fishery resource managers are to assure that fishery resources are maintained in a viable condition for future generations and that optimum yield from harvestable fisheries is achieved. In the context of these goals, fishery managers confront certain well defined issues when a phenomenon such as an unusual algae bloom occurs. These issues will be defined and the status of their resolution relative to New York’s Brown Tide algae blooms will be discussed.
