The NOAA Restoration Center has been restoring coastal habitats for more than 25 years.

At NOAA Fisheries, we understand the importance of healthy habitat, which provides important feeding and breeding grounds for fish and other marine life.
Over the last twenty five years, the Restoration Center has helped restore valuable habitat— implementing 3,300 projects and restoring more than 130,000 acres. We have developed new and innovative restoration techniques, and brought partners and funding sources together to achieve common goals. 

These restoration projects are helping us achieve our goal of rebuilding fisheries and contributing to the recovery of protected species. They are also improving the resilience of coastal communities. Learn more about how habitat restoration leads to healthier, more abundant fish.
