Decoding the Mystery of Turtle Genomes
Using samples from NOAA Fisheries’ tissue library, scientists have sequenced the complete genomes of leatherback and green sea turtles revealing differences in the two species that could help us understand their risks to climate change.
The DriX: A New Uncrewed Surface Vehicle to Support Fisheries Surveys
In the winter of 2022-2023, the DriX, a new uncrewed surface vehicle, was delivered & tested in preparation for field trials this summer during an acoustic-trawl fisheries survey in Alaska. Stay tuned for more information coming in the fall of 2023.
Salmon on the High Seas: Unlocking the Mysteries of Salmon in the North Pacific
Scientists are surveying the Gulf of Alaska to find out more about Pacific salmon (Chinook, Coho, sockeye, chum and pink salmon). The information they gather will help managers plan for changes these populations will face due to climate change.
NEFSC Gear Research Series: Better Gear By Design
The Northeast Fisheries Science Center's Gear Research group works with fishermen to design, test, and modify fishing gear. They've found ways to protect endangered sea turtles and marine mammals while maintaining the target species catch.
NEFSC Gear Research Series: Lose the Rope, Give Whales Hope
Ropeless or on-demand technologies offer a potential solution for whales and other protected species that can become entangled in traditional lobster traps and crab pots. Find out what ropeless is all about from the NEFSC gear research team!
