  • NOAA Fisheries
    NOAA Fisheries is responsible for the stewardship of the nation's ocean resources and their habitat. We provide vital services for the nation: productive and sustainable fisheries, safe sources of seafood, the recovery and conservation of protected resources, and healthy ecosystems—all backed by sound science and an ecosystem-based approach to management. U.S. fisheries are among the world’s largest and most sustainable. Seafood harvested from U.S. federally managed fisheries is inherently sustainable as a result of the U.S. fishery management process. Using the Magnuson-Stevens Act as the guide, NOAA Fisheries works in partnership with Regional Fishery Management Councils to assess and predict the status of fish stocks, set catch limits, ensure compliance with fisheries regulations, and reduce bycatch. Formally known as the National Marine Fisheries Service, we are an office of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration within the Department of Commerce.

  • Stream Explorers - Trout Unlimited - 15 and Under
    Why go fishing, you ask? There are many reasons to cast a line into the water. Fishing is a great way to learn about fish and the rivers and streams where they live. All methods of angling (another word for fishing) connect us to the natural world. When we go out, we can see the importance of respecting the environment and protecting our streams and rivers. Fishing is an activity where you can have fun outside with your friends and family — a healthful life-long sport where learning is always an adventure. So get out on the water, and get hooked on fishing! Want a great chance to meet other kids and teens who care about trout and the streams they live in?

  • Wild Steelhead Coalition
    Wild steelhead, the Washington state fish, are an important cultural and economic legacy in the Pacific Northwest and have been reduced to a fraction of their historic capacity. Over-harvest, habitat loss, ineffective hatchery practices, human-constructed barriers to migration, and misguided management strategies have all contributed to the decline–and in some cases extinction–of wild steelhead runs. The Wild Steelhead Coalition (WSC) believes that, without meaningful changes to policies and attitudes, these same factors will continue to reduce wild steelhead populations to the point where they will no longer be sustainable.
