ASMFC honors Gartland with Annual Award of Excellence
Date:11/6/2013

The Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission has presented Jim Gartland of the Virginia Institute of Marine Science with one of two Annual Awards of Excellence for his outstanding contributions to the field of fisheries science.

The ASMFC was established by the 15 Atlantic coastal states in 1942 for the conservation and management of their shared migratory fishery resources. Its jurisdiction covers near-shore waters from Florida to Maine.

ASMFC honored Gartland for his exemplary management of the Multispecies Fisheries Research Program at VIMS, which comprises three large-scale research surveysChesMMAP in Chesapeake Bay, NEAMAP in the coastal waters from Cape Hatteras to New England, and the VIMS Shark Longline Survey. Data from the surveys underlie the stock assessments that are used to sustainably manage commercially, recreationally, and ecologically important species of fish and shellfish along the Atlantic seaboard.

The other awardee was Dr. Alexei Sharov, a biostatistician with the Maryland Department of Natural Resources' Estuarine and Marine Fisheries Division, who was recognized for his work with striped bass and menhaden.

In comments at the awards ceremonyheld on October 29 during the 2013 ASMFC Annual Meeting on St. Simons Island, Georgia ASMFC Executive Director Robert E. Beal said, "Dr. Sharov and Mr. Gartland are both remarkable scientists whose energy, enthusiasm, and commitment to excellence are an inspiration to their fellow scientists and fishery managers that depend on the outcomes of their efforts. Both recipients demonstrate exemplary leadership and expertise as they work to support programs that promote healthy, self-sustaining fisheries populations."

VIMS Dean and Director John Wells echoes those sentiments, saying that "Work by Jim and other members of our Multispecies Fisheries group is at the core of what VIMS does bestproviding science-based guidance to help sustainably manage the marine r
