NOAA’s FishWatch Gets a Fresh Look

The NOAA’s re-launched FishWatch website provides easy-to-understand science-based facts to help consumers make smart sustainable seafood choices.

About NOAA’s FishWatch Website

FishWatch delivers the most up-to-date information on popular seafood harvested – or farmed – in the United States. FishWatch helps you understand the complex science, laws, and management process actively sustaining our seafood supply.

FishWatch is maintained by NOAA Fisheries, the leading science authority for managing the nation’s marine fisheries. Under our watch, U.S. fisheries are scientifically monitored and managed, and U.S. fishermen follow the most restrictive regulations in the world.

Our fisheries are some of the largest and most valuable in the world and supply about a fifth of the seafood we eat in the United States. The U.S. approach for sustainably managing fisheries has become an international model for addressing the challenges facing global ocean fisheries today.
