Informational brochure from NOAA's Office of Law Enforcement.

NOAA’s Office of Law Enforcement is dedicated to enforcing laws that conserve and protect our nation’s marine resources and their natural habitat. We ensure a level playing field for honest fishermen, defend U.S. economic and public health interest from illegal international and domestic fishing activities, and protect vulnerable marine species in order to ensure these global resources are available for future generations.
