With the aim of supporting Ecosystem-Based Management, the Gulf of Mexico NOAA Integrated Ecosystem Assessment Program seeks to provide scientific knowledge of the Gulf of Mexico integrated ecosystem, and transfer that knowledge to scientists and managers. A suite of indicators was developed to represent key components of the GoM, and are presented in this website and report. To aid in the selection of appropriate indicators, a conceptual modeling framework is used to identify focal ecosystem components. The conceptual framework used in this effort is described below.

This Ecosystem Status Report is compiled by NOAA’s Gulf of Mexico Integrated Ecosystem Assessment Program (IEA), in collaboration with academic partners, conservation organizations, and other government and state agencies
