The mission of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is to explore, map, and chart the global ocean and its living resources; to manage, use, and conserve those resources; to assess the consequences of inadvertent environmental modification over several scales of time; and to disseminate long-term environmental information. The Administration conducts an integrated program of management, research, and services related to the protection and rational use of living marine resources and their habitats, and protects marine mammals and endangered marine species.
