Alaska Regional Office Strategic Plan 2016-2020
NOAA Fisheries Alaska Region Strategic Plan for Fiscal Years 2016-2020. The Alaska Region is the custodian of living marine resources in the nearly 1.5 million square miles of the North Pacific and Arctic Ocean off Alaska.
This strategic plan is an opportunity to look forward over the next five years, take stock of our resources, provide insight into our key challenges and evolving mission priorities, and chart the course ahead. Following a brief overview of our mission, operating environment, and organizational structure, this plan puts forth a strategic set of goals and strategies intended to provide a path toward the future—a path we will follow together with our management and research partners, resource user groups, and other stakeholders who rely on NOAA Fisheries to sustain the nation’s living marine resources, habitats, and ecosystems.
