The NOAA Fisheries (NMFS) Restoration Center restores coastal, marine and anadromous fish habitats that support the nation's fisheries and other trust resources. The Center provides technical restoration expertise on restoration planning, implementation and monitoring, and provides financial assistance through various grant programs. With program staff located in coastal regions across the country, the Restoration Center is working to advance the science of habitat restoration by expanding local habitat restoration projects into broad-scale, ecosystem-based restoration efforts.

From 1996-2014, the NMFS Restoration Center has supported over 100 community restoration projects and 20 Marine Debris projects in the Alaska Region, benefiting more than 578 acres of estuarine and riparian habitat and opening approximately 100 miles of in-stream salmon habitat.
