We develop the scientific foundation for the conservation and management of marine resources in the California Current and Pan-Pacific Pelagic Ecosystems. We serve the public and contribute information to management organizations and the scientific community.
The work of FRD is organized into four functional groups:
Analysis and Synthesis, and
Communication and Administration.
Cross-cutting these functional groups are four research programs:
Coastal Pelagic Species,
Highly Migratory Species,
West Coast Groundfish, and
CalCOFI: Sam McClatchie
