Part I: California Drought-Protecting Salmon
NOAA Fisheries, the California Department of Fish & Wildlife, water control agencies and private landowners come together to find ways to ration water for endangered salmon survival during the California drought.
Part II: California Drought-A Changing Landscape
Conveys what some California water suppliers are doing to serve their agricultural customers while helping to keep water in streams for endangered fish and how one farmer uses soil moisture sensors to save water and money.
Part III: California Drought-Voluntary Drought Initiative
Landowners and fish agencies are working together in California to save imperiled fish trying to survive in critically low river systems during the drought.
Part IV: California Drought-A Shared Vision for Salmon Recovery
Features farmers, ranchers, fish management agencies, and water control agencies discussing strengthened relationships forged during the current drought and how to move these relationships forward to achieve salmon recovery in an uncertain future.
The Science Behind Gray Whale Research
An interview with NOAA scientists about how they study gray whales and their migration patterns. Scientists use photo identification to understand more about where Western North Pacific gray whales go over winter.
Gray Whale Research Part 1: Born to Migrate
The first in a series of three videos about North Pacific gray whale research and conservation, "Born to Migrate" describes the migration of eastern North Pacific gray whales - where they travel and why. https://swfsc.noaa.gov/GrayWhales/
Gray Whale Research Part 2: From the Brink of Extinction to Recovery
The second of three videos about gray whale research and conservation, "From the Brink of Extinction to Recovery" describes how the eastern population recovered and how the western population has yet to do so. https://swfsc.noaa.gov/GrayWhales/
Gray Whale Research Part 3: The Rigors of Research
The third in a series of three videos about gray whale research and conservation, "The Rigors of Research" describes how how SWFSC scientists identify gray whales and figure out where they go. https://swfsc.noaa.gov/GrayWhales/
Recompression Devices: Helping Anglers Fish Smarter
The survival rates of caught and released deep sea fish are low because of a condition known as “barotrauma”. Learn how NOAA Fisheries and partners in the recreational fishing community are working together to address this problem.
A River Reborn: Restoring Salmon Habitat Along the Duwamish River
The Boeing Company worked with NOAA under a Natural Resource Damage Assessment to restore habitat harmed by historical industrial activities on the Lower Duwamish River. Learn how the project will benefit the community, fish, and wildlife.
