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.

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.
