browse graphic The NOAA Fisheries Office of Habitat Conservation protects, restores, and promotes stewardship of coastal and marine habitat to support our nation?s fisheries and preserve our coastal communities for future generations. Our vision is healthy and sustainable habitat that provides a range of benefits for abundant fish and wildlife, commercial and recreational opportunities, and resilient coastal communities that can withstand hurricanes, flooding, and other natural and man-made threats. Healthy habitat is essential to the reproduction, growth, and diversity of harvested fish and directly supports NOAA?s priority to end overfishing and rebuild our nation?s fisheries.
