Supporting sustainable fisheries through research

The Fisheries Collaborative Program (FCP) is part of the Institute of Marine Sciences at UC Santa Cruz, and co-located at NOAA’s Southwest Fisheries Science Center.

Through collaboration and innovative research, our teams advance the science of fisheries ecology and resource management, conduct comprehensive studies on the conservation of threatened and endangered species, and drive effective policy decisions that support sustainable, ecosystem-based fisheries initiatives with global impact.
