At NOAA Fisheries, we are responsible for the stewardship of the nation’s living marine resources and their habitat. We provide vital services for the nation: sustainable and productive fisheries, safe sources of seafood, the recovery and conservation of protected resources, and healthy ecosystems—all backed by sound science and an ecosystem-based approach to management.

The goals of our strategic plan are focused on key statutes and the priorities of this Administration:

  • Building a climate-ready nation, including resilient fisheries and coastal communities.
  • Ensuring the sustainability and competitiveness of U.S. fishing and seafood industries.
  • Recovering and protecting marine species.
  • Continuing to build a mission-oriented, diverse workforce and to promote equity and environmental justice.
