Environmental and Fisheries Sciences Division

Note: This division is the product of an ongoing merger of two science divisions, the Environmental Conservation (EC) and the Resource Enhancement and Utilization Technologies (REUT) Divisions. The merger is still awaiting final approval by NOAA.

The EFS Division conducts research to assess and reduce natural and human-caused impacts on environmental and human health, and to improve methods for fisheries restoration and production in conservation hatcheries and in aquaculture.

EFS also maintains a readiness to respond quickly to environmental emergencies from the release of toxic materials into the environment.
