NOAA Fisheries Navigator

NOAA Fisheries Service Introduces New Publication


January 2011 – The Northeast Regional Office of NOAA Fisheries Service is producing a bi-monthly publication in Commercial Fisheries News to better inform the fishing industry and general public about our many activities. NOAA Fisheries Service believes that timely and accurate information is critical to understanding our environment and to the success of any business. This is one of the ways that NOAA Fisheries is delivering news and information.

The NOAA Fisheries Navigator will centralize information for readers so they can get updates on a variety of topics that range from regulatory actions to cooperative research to educational opportunities. Information relevant to different marine species, such as multispecies groundfish, tuna, lobster, scallops, whales, and turtles, will be included. We hope also to capture the more personal side of commercial fishing in our region by profiling fishermen, seafood dealers, and others who work in the fishing industry.

We anticipate that you will find this publication informative, useful, and timely.
