Creel Survey Training:
On June 17 and 18, 2015, staff members Auvaa Soonaolo and Saolotoga Tofaeono from the American Samoa Department of Marine and Wildlife Resources (DMWR) conducted a creel survey training for 14 junior and senior students from Manu‘a High School on the island Ta‘u. Creel surveys are used throughout the Territory to estimate catch and effort for coral reef and bottomfish fisheries managed by the DMWR and the Western Pacific Regional Fishery Management Council. Life history information about the species along with the creel surveys provide fishery managers information needed to set annual catch limits.
