ST Education and Training
ST’s education and outreach efforts are directed at a wide range of audiences that include K-12, undergraduate and graduate students, the general public, and international fisheries communities. Many of these efforts focus on building capacity and increasing diversity in NOAA Fisheries’ science workforce, particularly in the fields of stock assessment science and marine resource economics.
K-12 and the General Public:
- NOAA Enrichment in Marine Sciences and Oceanography (NEMO) Program
- Program for Washington, D.C.’s inner city schools to promote ocean literacy
- Voices from the Fisheries
- The Voices from the Fisheries Database is a central repository for consolidating, archiving, and disseminating oral history interviews related to commercial, recreational, and subsistence fishing in the United States and its territories.
Undergraduate and Graduate
