The Atlantic salmon is the only species of salmon native to the east coast of the U.S. Once celebrated as the “king of fish,” only 1% of the historic population remains. This video spotlights efforts to recover their population, and how you can help.
Cracking the Research Set-Aside Case
In 2010, the NOAA Office of Law Enforcement embarked on a 4-year investigation which exposed one of the largest fisheries conspiracy networks on the East Coast. See how the case was cracked, and the positive impact it had on the local fishing economy
Discover the Deep-Sea Corals of Maine

Northwest Atlantic Shark Cooperative Fishery
What information can shark scientists gather from species caught in cooperative research fisheries? What have they learned about the sandbar shark population? What are the benefits to fish consumers from these fisheries? This video provides answers.
National Saltwater Recreational Fisheries Policy
Saltwater recreational fishing is an important thread in the social, cultural, and economic fabric of coastal communities. NOAA is committed to fostering and enhancing sustainable, high quality recreational fisheries and public access to them.
Habitat Exploration: Deep-Sea Corals
More than 70 underwater canyons exist off the northeastern coast of the US, some more than three miles deep. In this video, journey to the deep and discover new species of deep-sea coral and more through the eye of a remotely operated vehicle (ROV).
Renewed Passage: Buzzards Bay to the Acushnet River
Learn how NOAA Fisheries and its partners installed a "nature-like" fishway on the Acushnet River in Massachusetts to improve habitat and help migrating herring access prime spawning grounds.
Restoring Fisheries Through Habitat Restoration
Part of restoring commercially and recreationally important fish populations happens through restoring the habitat of those species. Repairing degraded fish habitat is the specialty of NOAA's Restoration Center.
Meet Bob Keese, Scalloper
