      By comparing fish in the agriculturally-dominated Corsica River with fish caught in developed
      or forested rivers, we learn how land use affects fish health, diversity, and abundance. In the
      Chesapeake Bay, we catch more fish in nutrient-rich rivers adjacent to farms, but those fish are
      less healthy and more likely to carry disease. Photo credit: Tracy Gill.

NCCOS provides research, scientific information and tools to help balance the Nation's ecological, social and economic goals. The research and tools we provide are central to addressing coastal issues raised in legislation and NOAA's priorities. We also provide the research necessary for communities to develop effective and sustainable management of their resources.

Most of our products (publications, datasets, maps, imagery, and so forth) are linked through the individual project pages, available through our Projects Explorer. Our publications may also be found in our Publications Explorer.
