Climate Change & Marine Animals: A Conservation Challenge
Climate-driven changes such as higher ocean temperatures and extreme weather events are affecting the health of marine animals—and their ability to survive. Learn how our scientists are using the best available science to conserve these species
Working Together Restoring the Gulf
The Oceanic Fish Restoration Project’s community liaisons connected participating Gulf of Mexico fishermen with project partners, ensuring their voices and needs are heard.
Helping Fish Helping Fishermen
Gulf of Mexico fishermen share their experiences and observations with fishing after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
Resilience Relationships and the Future
Oceanic Fish Restoration Project partners describe the growth of relationships with Gulf of Mexico fishermen during the years of the project.
Restoration Benefits and Results
Learn about some of the Oceanic Fish Restoration Project’s early results, which helped keep more fish in the sea to grow and reproduce.
Innovation of Participating Fishermen
Gulf of Mexico fishermen and seafood dealers talk about how the Oceanic Fish Restoration Project’s use of alternative fishing gear – which reduces landings of non-target fish species – supports sustainable fishing in the Gulf.
Oceanic Fish Restoration Project - Fishermen Restoring Fish in the Gulf of Mexico
The Deepwater Horizon Oceanic Fish Restoration Project worked with fishermen across the Gulf of Mexico to help restore fish species impacted by the 2010 spill.
Good Salmon Habitat Works
Salmon grow strong where water slows down and weaves across floodplains, with lush vegetation that provides refuge and fosters food for their journey to the ocean. Research and monitoring proves restoring habitat works for salmon, and all of us.
Improving Habitat for Community Resilience: The Middle Peninsula Habitat Focus Area in Virginia
Join NOAA Fisheries as we visit the Middle Peninsula (Virginia) Habitat Focus Area to learn about the challenges the area faces from climate change—and the projects we’re working on with partners to enhance coastal resilience.
Good Mud - Upper Barataria Marsh Creation Project
At the "outfall," sediment pumped from the Mississippi River sprays from the end of a 13-mile pipe, and becomes the foundation of new Louisiana marshland. The Upper Barataria project is restoring habitat damaged by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
Upper Barataria Marsh Creation - 13-Mile Pipeline
A 13-mile pipeline transports millions of gallons of sediment from the Mississippi River to rebuild eroded marshlands in coastal Louisiana. The 1,200-acre Upper Barataria Marsh Creation Project is NOAA's largest marsh creation project to date.
