The Lenfest Forage Fish Task Force conducted the most comprehensive global analysis of the science and management of forage fish populations to date. This group of 13 pre-eminent scientists used a variety of approaches, including workshops, site visits, a series of nine case studies, review of existing theory and practice, and two quantitative analyses using marine food web models. In the first of these quantitative studies, the task force estimated global forage fish contributions to marine ecosystems through a synthesis of 72 published Ecopath models from around the world.
