Northwest Fisheries Science Center- NOAA Fisheries Service
NOAA's Northwest Fisheries Science Center studies living marine resources (e.g., salmon, groundfish, and killer whales) and their habitats in the Northeast Pacific Ocean-primarily off the coasts of Washington and Oregon and in freshwater rivers and streams in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana. The Center seeks to better understand living marine resources and their ecosystems to assist resource managers in making sound decisions that build sustainable fisheries, recover endangered and threatened species, and sustain healthy ecosystems, and reduce human health risks. The Center's 500 scientists and staff conduct research in 5 primary areas including fish stocks, human caused stress/risks, ecosystems observations and climate variability, recovery and rebuilding species, and innovation and technology. The Center's website provides access to climate change impacts on fisheries ecology and management research in the Northwest.
