Environmental Consultation Organizer (ECO)
ECO is an information management application covering NOAA Fisheries consultations under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act sections 305(b)(2) & 305(b)(4) Essential Fish Habitat (EFH).
ECO is a web-based query system that allows all federal agencies, project managers, permit applicants, consultants, and the general public to find the current status of NOAA Fisheries’ Endangered Species Act (ESA) and Essential Fish Habitat (EFH) consultations that are being conducted (or have been completed) pursuant to ESA Section 7 and Magnuson Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. Access to these documents is free and available to all. You will need to use your CAC card or request an account to log into ECO. More information on account access is below.
