Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)

Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a federal law that gives the public the right to make written requests for federal agency records. All federal agencies, including NOAA Fisheries, are required to disclose records unless the records are protected from disclosure by certain exemptions.

A FOIA request can be made for any NOAA Fisheries record that is not publicly available. Before making a FOIA request, please make sure the information is not already accessible on our website.
