Meet Our Coastal And Ocean Stewards

GARFO is responsible for stewardship of living marine resources from Maine to North Carolina. These resources include fish stocks, habitat, and protected species.

We implement science-based conservation and management, focused on protection and restoration of healthy ecosystems. To be successful, we have staff with different backgrounds, skills, and knowledge.  Stewards working on these issues in the Greater Atlantic Region may work directly for GARFO, for NOAA Fisheries Headquarters, or for a contracting company.
