Climate Vulnerability Assessments

Changing climate and ocean conditions are impacting the nation’s valuable marine resources and the people, businesses and communities that depend on them. NOAA Fisheries is assessing the vulnerability of fish stocks, protected species (marine mammals, sea turtles) and fishing communities to better understand which species may be most vulnerable and how to respond.
