SSC Membership Information

The Scientific and Statistical Committee (SSC) is the Gulf Council's primary technical advisory body. SSCs are charged in the reauthorized Magnuson-Stevens Act (MSA) with developing, evaluating, and peer reviewing all technical aspects of council documents. SSCs are expected to provide a broad suite of technical recommendations related to all aspects of the Council's management program, including addressing biological, social, economic, and environmental aspects.

SSCs also play a role in stock assessment development and review; in the Southeast region this responsibility is handled through the Southeast Data Assessment and Review (SEDAR) process.
