c Committee and Staff Biographies COMMITTEE Ray Hilborn (Chair) is currently Richard C. and Lois M. Professor of Fisheries Management at the School of Aquatic Fishery Sciences of the University of Washington. Dr. Hilborn earned his Ph.D. in zoology from the University of British Columbia in 1974. His main areas of research are resource management, population dynamics, and conservation biology. Dr. Hilborn was a member of the Committee on Fish Stock Assessment Meth- ods and the Ocean Studies Board. Joseph DeAlteris has been a professor at the University of Rhode Island since 1995. Dr. DeAlteris earned his Ph.D. in 1986 from the Virginia Insti- tute of Marine Science. His recent research has focused on aquatic resource harvesting technologies and their impact on the ecosystem, in particular the reduction of bycatch through development of size- and species-specific fishing gear and the quantitative evaluation of effects of fishing gear on fish stocks, habitat, and manmade structures placed on and under the seabed. Dr. DeAlteris was a member of the committee for the report Elects of Trawl- ing and Dredging on Seafloor Habitat. Richard Deriso is chief scientist of the Tuna-Billfish Program of the Inter- American Tropical Tuna Commission. He also serves as adjunct associate professor at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and affiliate professor 127

His major research interests are in the areas of fisheries population dynamics, quanti- tative ecology, stock assessment, applied mathematics, and statistics. Dr. Deriso is a member of the Ocean Studies Board and served on the Committee to Review Atlantic Bluefin Tuna. Gary Graham is a professor and extension marine fisheries specialist at Texas A&M University, Galveston. Mr. Graham earned his B.S. in range management at Texas A&M University. His research interests are fisheries development activities focusing on assessment of resources, determination of harvesting gear, and establishment of markets. Mr. Graham was a mem- ber of the Committee on Sea Turtle Conservation. Suzanne Iu~licello is currently an independent consultant after serving for 10 years with the Center for Marine Conservation, until 1997 as its vice president for programs and general counsel. Ms. Iudicello earned her I.D. in environmental law from George Washington University in 1989. She organized and conducted several successful negotiations between fishers and conservationists in 1988 and 1993, resulting in amendments to the Marine Mammal Protection Act that have reduced incidental takes of ma- rine mammals in fishing operations. Mark Luntlsten actively fished for 27 seasons, mostly for halibut and sable- fish in the Gulf of Alaska and the Bering Sea. He recently retired as the owner-operator of the fishing vessel Masonic, a 70-foot longliner. Mr. Lundsten earned his B.A. in English from Pomona College in 1973. He helped develop bird deterrence techniques in the longline fishery and then ran his vessel as a survey boat to test and refine those techniques, which later became regulations. He is a board member of the National Fisheries Conservation Center and served on the National Marine Fisheries Service IFQ Panel to review the National Research Council report Sharing the Fish: Toward a National Policy on IndLivid(ual Fishing Quotas. Ellen Pikitch is director of marine conservation programs at the Wildlife Conservation Society and in that capacity oversees the society's field and laboratory marine and freshwater research and conservation efforts. Dr. Pikitch earned her Ph.D. in zoology from Indiana University in 1982. Dr. Pikitch's main research interests are in fisheries science, stock assess-

APPENDIX C 129 meet, bycatch problems, and other marine conservation issues. Dr. Pikitch served on the Committee on Ecosystem Management for Sustainable Marine Fisheries. Gil Sylvia is the superintendent of the Coastal Oregon Marine Experiment Station and associate professor in agricultural resources and economics at Oregon State University. Dr. Sylvia earned his Ph.D. in marine resource economics from the University of Rhode Island in 1989. His research and outreach have focused on a broad range of fisheries and aquaculture issues, with particular emphasis on market development and public policy for Oregon fisheries. Dr. Sylvia is a member of the Science and Statistical Com- mittee of the Pacific Fisheries Management Council. Priscilla Weeks has worked as a research associate at the Environmental Institute of Houston, University of Houston, Clear Lake, since 1993. Dr. Weeks earned her Ph.D. in anthropology in 1988 from Rice Univer- sity. Her research focuses on cultural anthropology, social aspects of natural resource management and environmental regulations, social aspects of natural resource management and rural development, and cross-cultural scientific collaboration. She is also a member of the socioeconomic panel that provides advice to the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council. Dr. Weeks served on the committee for the report Elects of Trawling and Dredging on Seafloor Habitat. John Williamson is a member of the New England Fishery Management Council, serving on the Sea Scallop, Groundfish, Herring, Protected Spe- cies, Habitat, and Gear Conflict Committees and is chairman of the Re- search Steering Committee. Mr. Williamson's current interest is working with commercial fishermen to promote collaborative research and data- gathering programs. Mr. Williamson has been working under a series of grant awards administered through the New England Aquarium Conserva- tion Department to promote conservation planning by the fishing industry. Kees Zwanenburg is a research scientist in the Marine Fish Division at the Bedford Institute of Oceanography. Mr. Zwanenburg earned his B.Sc. in zoology (honors) from the University of Alberta in 1977 and his M.Sc. in fish population dynamics from McGill University in 1981. During the past 20 years, Mr. Zwanenburg has identified shortcomings in our understand- ing of exploited populations and conducted research to address them. He

His present research focuses on how fisheries impact marine ecosystems. NATIONAL RESEARCH COUNCIL STAFF Terry Schaefer is a program officer at the Ocean Studies Board where he has been since August 2001. He received his Ph.D. in oceanography and coastal sciences from Louisiana State University in 2001 and a master's degree in biology/coastal zone studies from the University of West Florida in 1996. In 1998 he served as a John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellow in the office of the chief scientist, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Adminis- tration. Since joining the Ocean Studies Board, he has directed the study Science and Its Role in the National Marine Fisheries Service (20021. Previ- ously, Dr. Schaefer worked for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, National Park Service, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Fish and Wild- life Service, and U.S. Forest Service. Dr. Schaefer's interests include recruit- ment dynamics of marine populations, experimental statistics, coastal zone management, and marine policy. Denise Greene is a senior project assistant at the Ocean Studies Board and has nine years of experience working for the National Academies. Mrs. Greene has been involved with studies on marine biotechnology, envi- ronmental information for naval warfare, and fisheries policy.
