U.S.-Mexico Fishery Cooperation Talks:
NOAA Fisheries and the Mexican Secretariat for the Environment, Natural Resources and Fisheries (known as SEMARNAP in Spanish) conduct an extensive fisheries cooperation program. This program was initiated in 1983 and cooperative projects have included: fisheries management, enforcement, seafood trade, endangered species conservation, aquaculture, and scientific cooperation. Periodic meetings provide a forum to exchange views and plan cooperative projects. The achievements in dolphin and turtle conservation, and cooperative scientific research have been particularly notable.

NMFS and SEMARNAP scientists also meet annually to coordinate research in the Gulf of Mexico and Pacific through two research cooperation programs: MEXUS-Gulf and MEXUS-Pacifico.
