Former State Rep. John Quinn of Dartmouth has just about completed his first three-day meeting as a member of the New England Regional Fisheries Management Council. 

The meeting took place in Plymouth, and Quinn says the validity of scientific data dominated most of the discussion.

As a member of the council, Quinn says he wants to help shorten the time it takes to gather scientific data, and have it come before the council. 

Critics say the council often bases its decisions on what is really outdated information.
