Both the role of the fishery biologist and the meaning of biological objectives of fishery management have changed in the last few decades. Tbe economic, social, and, above all, political nature of fishery management is now recognized. Tbe most important use of biological information is to evaluate the constraints to achieving social objectives. These issues were discussed by the workshop introduced by this paper. Topics included the biological component of management objectives and the nature and uses made of the scientific assessments and predictions provided by fishery biologists.
