NOAA Fisheries is responsible for the stewardship of the nation’s ocean resources and their habitat. Our mission is to ensure productive and sustainable fisheries, safe sources of seafood, the recovery and conservation of protected resources, and healthy ecosystems, all backed by sound science and an ecosystem-based approach to management. In the past 5 years, our science and advice to management have required that we consider �” among others �” remarkable changes in our environment and expansions in the multi-sectoral uses of coastal regions. At the same time, we have benefited from rapid advances in scientific and technological capabilities, such as molecular (‘omics) methods, artificial intelligence, unmanned systems, and computational capabilities. As such, it is fair to say that we are at a pivot point in the science needed to address upcoming challenges. A discussion of next steps in our science will be presented.

Dr. Francisco (Cisco) Werner is the Director of Scientific Programs and Chief Science Advisor for NOAA Fisheries, a role he took on in June 2017. In this capacity, he leads NOAA Fisheries’ efforts to provide the science needed to support sustainable fisheries and ecosystems and to continue our nation’s progress in ending overfishing, rebuilding fish populations, saving critical species, and preserving vital habitats. As director, Cisco supervises the planning, development, and management of a multidisciplinary scientific enterprise of basic and applied research. He oversees NOAA’s six regional Fisheries Science Centers, including 24 labs and field stations, and the Office of Science and Technology. Cisco previously served as the Science and Research Director for NOAA’s Southwest Fisheries Science Center from 2011 to 2016. Prior to joining NOAA Fisheries, he was the Director of the Institute of Marine and Coastal Studies at Rutgers University. Cisco’s research has focused on the development and implementation of numerical models of ocean circulation and ocean forecasting systems. He has also published extensively on the effects of physical forcing on marine ecosystems and the impact on the structure, function, and abundance of ecologically and commercially important species in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. He served as Chair of the GLOBEC (Global Ecosystem Dynamics) Program, and is presently the U.S. delegate to PICES (the North Pacific Marine Science Organization). Cisco earned his BSc in Mathematics, and his MSc and PhD in Oceanography, all from the University of Washington. https://www.fisheries.noaa.gov/contact/cisco-werner-phd
