          sound and timely, which involves:

               guiding biologists toward a definition of what kind and quality of information is needed
               for sound management of recreational fisheries;
               selecting proper sample surveys or experimental designs to provide accurate estimates
               or valid tests;
               determining sample sizes to provide the desired level of precision and accuracy, or the
               necessary power to detect significant differences associated with statistical tests;
               cooperatively working with project leaders in the development of biometrically sound
               sampling schedules.
