This is a testimony compilation of the March 22, 2016 hearing on "Examining the Missions and Impacts of the President's Proposed Fiscal Year 2017 Budgets of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Bureau of Reclamation and the Power Marketing Administrations" held before the Subcommittee on Water, Power and Oceans of the House Committee on Natural Resources. From the opening statement of John Fleming: "There has been a complete lack of emphasis on funding fisheries science and data collection. It's the worst kept secret in the Gulf of Mexico that the red snapper population is now abundant. You would never know that from this Administration, which has, in fact, done very little to improve fishery data collection, while continuing to reduce recreational fishing days. Instead, NOAA [National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration] has prioritized its central office by adding over 200 new employees." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Jim Kurth, Estevan Lopez, Mark Gabriel, Claudia Andrews, and Eileen Sobeck.
