|About||Join us as we explore the ocean’s depths and discover the mysteries of rich ocean resources in Alaska and the Arctic.|
|Mission||NOAA Fisheries Alaska is dedicated to the science-based stewardship of marine resources in the north Pacific and Arctic oceans. We support sustainable fisheries and work to recover and conserve protected species, like marine mammals. We also promote healthy ecosystems and resilient coastal communities.|
NOAA Fisheries Alaska manages fisheries and conducts the science that keeps them sustainable. Alaska produces about half the fish caught in the US, worth an estimated $1.8 billion. Scientists also work to conserve protected species -- mostly marine mammals -- and to preserve Alaska's marine habitats.
