The plans also commit NOAA to working alongside anglers to improve scientific understanding and the health of the marine environment. We are planning several collaborations, including citizen-science research initiatives, habitat-improvement projects, and cooperative fishery surveys and tagging programs for tunas, sharks, and billfish. The regional plans are one example of our agency-wide focus on recreational fisheries. They also support our commitment to expand and grow the blue economy. Additional information on our work with anglers and copies of the regional plans are available on our website.
