Stephani Zador is a research scientist at the NOAA Alaska Fisheries Science Center in Seattle. She works on ecosystem indicators and assessments to inform the North Pacific Fisheries Management Council’s groundfish quota-setting process. Her research focuses on developing ecosystem indicators with strong application to marine resource management. She also serves on the steering committee of NOAA’s Fisheries and the Environment (FATE) program. Stephani’s background is in seabirds and often finds ways to incorporate seabirds into her current research.
