Tagging Leatherback Turtles
Scientists tag leatherback sea turtles to learn where they are and how they use the water so we can better protect them from bycatch and other threats.
Using Tags to Understand North Atlantic Right Whales
Fisheries and our partners put tags on North Atlantic right whales to learn about an individual’s movement and behavior. This video captured by a tag gives a little insight into what it is like being a North Atlantic right whale.
Exploring the Deep Gulf of Mexico (2022 Meso-Deep Cruises)
In 2022, NOAA and collaborators conducted scientific cruises in deeper areas of the Gulf of Mexico near the location of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The cruises support deep-sea species and habitat restoration.
Climate Change & Habitat Loss: Fisheries at Risk
Habitat restoration experts discuss the challenges coastal habitats face from climate change and what NOAA is doing to address them
Size Matters: Examining the Effects of Body Size on Birth Rates in North Atlantic Right Whales
Recent research reveals that smaller female North Atlantic right whales produce fewer calves over their reproductive years. Their body size has been declining in recent decades due to increased entanglements in fishing gear and other factors.
NOAA and Partners Restoring 1,200 Acres of Marsh in Louisiana's Upper Barataria Basin
This massive project will contribute to the restoration of wetland, coastal, and nearshore habitats injured by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
Windows to the Deep 2021: A Firsthand Account
NOAA Fisheries marine biologist Allen Collins has just returned from co-leading the Windows to the Deep 2021 expedition. Learn about the fascinating species and habitat they saw as they explored the ocean with an underwater remotely-operated vehicle.
Windows to the Deep 2021
NOAA Fisheries marine biologist Allen Collins is co-leading the Windows to the Deep 2021 expedition. Learn about the fascinating species, habitat—even a shipwreck—they might see as they explore the ocean with an underwater remotely-operated vehicle.
The Southeast: Open for Fishing All Year Long
Three regions, the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico and South Atlantic, make up the NOAA Fisheries Southeast region and the Southeast region has a greater variety of species and more year-round recreational fishing opportunities than anywhere else.
Discovering a New Species of Whale
NOAA Fisheries announces a new species of baleen whale in the Gulf of Mexico. A recently published article in Marine Mammal Science indicates that the whale, previously known as the Bryde's (pronounced “broodus”) whale is actually a new whale.
