The Future of Fisheries: Unraveling the Effects of Climate Change in Alaska
Alaska's climate is changing. In the last five years, dramatic changes have affected marine life and the seafood we depend on. How will species respond? That's the main question that our specialized laboratory in Newport, Oregon, aims to answer.
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.
EcoFOCI: Forecasting Fisheries in a Warming Alaska
EcoFOCI is an innovative program that studies early life stages of fish and their prey, together with oceanographic conditions. The goal is to understand the effect of climate change on fisheries and ecosystems.
Fisheries Observers in the Northeast: Behind the Numbers
Observers are a crucial piece of the Northeast fisheries management puzzle. On commercial fishing vessels from Maine to North Carolina, they collect data that form the basis of stock assessments. Learn more about the people behind the numbers!

Investments in Bycatch Reduction
NOAA Fisheries invests millions of dollars in research to reduce bycatch and keep fisheries sustainable.
Fish Life History: An Important Role in Fisheries Management
Understanding fish life histories—or how a fish ages, grows, and reproduces throughout its life—is key to sustainably managing fisheries. Learn how scientists determine a fish’s life history profile and how we can support healthy fish populations.
Impact of COVID-19 on Pacific Island Fishing Values
The COVID-19 pandemic had global impacts to human health, safety, and livelihoods, including to Pacific Island fisheries. Pacific Islands region fishers share how the pandemic affected their livelihoods and how they adapted.
Our Climate & Our Fisheries: Join the Conversation
Climate change is causing significant impacts to our oceans, marine life, and ecosystems—and the communities and economies that depend on them. It affects every aspect of our mission. Find out how we are preparing and responding to these changes.
Fishery Observers On Board
Fishery observers are biologists that undergo intense training to become fishery observers at sea on commercial fishing vessels. They collect vital information about the health of fish species, which is used to manage the U.S.'s valuable fish stocks.
