Abstract
"Today the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) recognizes social science as one of the basic sciences supporting its mission. Planning documents routinely mention social science,recognizing that humans, their institutions, and their activities have profound effects on coastal and marine ecosystems and vice versa. This was not always the case. This paper describes the long voyage the agency has undertaken to develop its capacity to integrate social scientific analysis into its overall scientific analyses in support of its mission to manage, conserve, and protect living marine resources within the United States Exclusive Economic Zone."
