NOAA staff at the Southeast Regional Office and Southeast Fisheries Science Center are truly thankful to return to work following the lengthy government shutdown. This isn't just a job for us, it's a mission we are proud to support. Working with coastal communities to protect our natural marine resources, while providing fishing opportunities and maintaining a safe, sustainable seafood supply is something each and every one of us is passionate about.
We recognize the shutdown substantially impacted and challenged our constituents and partners we serve. Our highest priority is to address and minimize those impacts as quickly as possible. Our timelines will need to shift accordingly and we ask for your patience, understanding, and collaboration as we address the current backlog along with other regional priorities. Below is a list of helpful contacts for some of our offices and programs.
We appreciate our role as public servants and stewards of natural marine resources and are committed to working with you to accomplish our mission as effectively as possible.
