Alaska Equity and Environmental Justice Implementation Plan

NOAA Fisheries is working to advance equity and environmental justice through our marine conservation and management work in the Alaska Region.

In May 2023, NOAA Fisheries finalized its first-ever national Equity and Environmental Justice Strategy. The national strategy describes the path the agency will take to incorporate equity and environmental justice into the vital services the agency provides to all communities. NOAA Fisheries needs your help developing an Alaska implementation plan for this national strategy.

Request for Information

NOAA Fisheries is conducting teleconferences, meetings and webinars to gather your input on specific actions to incorporate into our Alaska Equity and Environmental Justice Implementation Plan. 

Members of the public can also provide written comment to inform the development of this plan that is specific and responsive to the needs of underserved communities in Alaska.

Telephone Townhall Meetings

NOAA Fisheries will be hosting teleconferences for Tribal government members and their representatives on October 17 and October 25. Teleconference recordings will be posted within a week of each teleconference.

We also plan to host an 1 1/2 hour public webinar on November 17 and a discussion session during the December North Pacific Fishery Management Council meeting.
