Projects

An Assessment of Fisheries Species to Inform Time-...

Environmental windows or moratoria are used by federal and state regulators in resource management to temporarily reduce adverse environmental impacts associated with coastal development. Seasonal restrictions on construction activities can ...

An Ecological Assessment to Support NOAA’s Choptan...

The Choptank watershed is an ecologically and economically valuable resource and designated Habitat Focus Area. We are collecting and synthesizing biological, chemical, and physical data to characterize the condition of ...

Assessing the Social and Cultural Importance of Su...

We are developing and validating a survey to measure the social and cultural importance of subsistence salmon harvest and use in Alaska. In the event of an oil spill or ...

Contaminants in Marine Resources of Vieques

Land based sources of pollution have the potential to negatively impact a variety of coastal resources, including fisheries stocks. This study is investigating the public perception that pollution is negatively ...

Global Ocean Ecosystems Dynamics (GLOBEC) Northeas...

Northeast Pacific fisheries of salmon, halibut, cod, perch, walleye pollock, rockfish and king crab are the largest U.S. commercial fisheries. From 1996 to 2008, NCCOS partnered with the National Science ...

Integrated Ecosystem Modeling of the Causes of Hyp...

The largest low oxygen (hypoxic) zone affecting the United States is in the northern Gulf of Mexico, adjacent to the Mississippi River. This “dead zone” in the Gulf of Mexico ...

Setting Shared Goals for South Florida’s Marine an...

We facilitated a process to identify the characteristics and key regulating processes of a sustainable South Florida coastal marine ecosystem. Using the best available science from academia, agencies, and non-governmental ...

Synthesis and Integrated Modeling of Long-Term Dat...

We are integrating existing data sets collected in the Northern Gulf of Mexico to study hypoxia impacts on coastal ecosystems and associated fisheries. We are using probabilistic, data-centric modeling to ...

Tracking the Extent and Effect of Hypoxia on Comme...

Low oxygen or hypoxic zones have increased in the Pacific Northwest. We are working with Dungeness crab fishermen in Oregon to deploy dissolved oxygen sensors on commercial crab pots to ...

User-Driven Tools to Predict and Assess Effects of...

We are developing user-friendly, management-scale forecasting tools and quantitative indicators for hypoxia impacts on the Northern Gulf of Mexico ecosystem. We will assess minimum data needs to ensure these forecasts ...

Primary Production Limits Fisheries Economic Perfo...

A new study from NCCOS and NOAA Fisheries researchers identifies primary production as the limiting factor on the economic performance of fisheries. Economic performance includes both fisheries revenue and employment ...

Fishing for Hypoxia

Third Advisory Panel Workshop on Hypoxia Effects o...

The third Advisory Panel Workshop on Hypoxia Effects of Fish and Fisheries was held virtually on December 14, 2020 as part of an NCCOS NGOMEX project led by Dr. Kim ...

Combining Geostatistical and Mechanistic Models Im...

NCCOS-sponsored scientists combined two traditional, but often separate, modeling approaches to better characterize, track, and predict coastal hypoxia in the northern Gulf of Mexico. Their study found that “fused” geostatistical ...

Marine Heatwaves Fuel Harmful Algal Blooms Off US ...

Recreational razor clamming can bring thousands of visitors to the Washington coast. Toxins concentrated in razor clam and Dungeness crab fisheries have caused economic damage to coastal communities. Repeated marine ...

Linking Chlorophyll Concentration and Wind Pattern...

The California Current System (CCS) is a highly productive region because of wind driven upwelling which supplies nutrients to the euphotic zone. Few studies have compared upwelling and algae blooms ...

Marine Shellfish Populations Estimated to be at Ri...

A new NCCOS-funded study shows that ocean acidification has the potential to harm wild populations of scallops and clams along the U.S. northeast coast. The rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide ...

Hypoxia Study Shows Fish Diet and Catchability Cha...

NCCOS sponsored research on hypoxia (low oxygen concentrations within the water column) finds that hypoxic conditions in the northern Gulf of Mexico have variable effects on fish diet, food webs, ...

Smaller, More User-friendly Sensor Developed to De...

NCCOS-supported scientists and engineers have developed a smaller and more user-friendly low cost sensor that fishermen can use to detect and track the onset of low oxygen events off the ...

Impacts and Solutions to Gulf of Mexico Hypoxia Hi...
