NOAA Action

NOAA embarked on an initiative in September 2009 to strengthen our partnership with the saltwater recreational fishing community. The initiative has worked to establish an agency culture where recreational fisheries values are recognized.

The initial internal restructuring enabled us to become more coordinated, strategic and responsive to angler concerns. The result is better conversations and new collaborations with the angling public. Below are several reports that provide more information on the initiative and both national and regional activities.
