Environmental and Fisheries Sciences Division

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.
