NOAA Research Cruise Aims to Dissolve Uncertainties of Ocean Acidification

Led by NOAA’s Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory scientists Dr. Richard Feely and Dr. Simone Alin, NOAA’s Ocean Acidification Cruise ran from Seattle, WA down the west coast to Moss Landing, CA. The excess carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere from burning fossil fuels is absorbed by our oceans, and this changing ocean chemistry could affect important ecosystems and fisheries. The research conducted on this cruise aims to bring greater understanding to these potential impacts.

Sea Grant Programs Strike Balance between Protecting Species and Protecting Economies

In commercial fishing, many species end up as "bycatch," caught unintentionally by vessels targeting other fish. Through research, education and outreach, NOAA Sea Grant is addressing bycatch from the Gulf of Maine to the Gulf of Mexico to the Gulf of Alaska.
