Northwest Fisheries Science Center (NWFSC) – Fishery Resource Analysis and Monitoring (FRAM) Division

The mission of the Fishery Resource Analysis and Monitoring (FRAM) division is to provide the scientific basis for the management of West Coast Groundfish stocks and their ecosystems. This involves comprehensive analysis of data from fishery monitoring, fishery-independent resource surveys, and biological investigations. The results provide estimates of the current status and future trends in abundance and productivity of marine fishery resources, evaluations of the potential effects of fishery management alternatives on abundance and yield of living marine resources, and better information on fishery bycatch and other multi-species issues.

Active Tectonics and Seafloor Mapping Laboratory, College of Oceanic and Atmospheric Sciences, Oregon State University

The mission of the Active Tectonics and Seafloor Mapping Lab (AT&SML) as it relates to marine habitat and IOOS has been to provide the best available maps of seafloor bathymetry, geology, and habitats. We have been actively involved in collecting new seabed data off Oregon and California as well as completing habitat maps used for modeling Essential Fish Habitat (EFH) of West Coast Groundfish.

We also provide development/hosting facilities and expertise for this data portal.
