Media Team Mission

The mission of the NOAA Fisheries media team is to work with the news media to educate and inform the American public about NOAA Fisheries’ activities and overall mission. To encourage accurate reporting, we help the media reach NOAA Fisheries experts and information and we help our experts communicate their knowledge clearly. We work to develop strong and trusting relationships with reporters by being accessible, responsive, and helpful.

Our work directly supports NOAA’s service mission to communicate our research, data, information, and knowledge with others, as well as NOAA’s objective of an engaged and educated public with an improved capacity to make scientifically informed environmental decisions.
