IT Support to NOAA Fisheries
Our IT services support included developing and integrating information management systems central to NOAA Fisheries’ management and protection of living marine resources and their habitats
CSS provided IT services to help NOAA Fisheries ensure the quality and credibility of its scientific data and research activities. Our support—including network administration, database development and administration, web application development, business analysis, technical writing, and IT security—reached across programs to help sustain the management and flow of scientific data. We helped build several data systems from the ground up:
- MRIP, the Marine Recreational Information Program, provides a detailed, comprehensive picture of recreational angling activities. Data include how many trips anglers take, how much and what kind of fish they catch, where and when those fish are caught, and the economic impact of recreational fishing on local, regional, and national economies.
- FSCS, the Fisheries Scientific Computing System, is designed to automate collection of fish specimen information. FSCS resides onboard vessels ranging in size from small charter craft to large research vessels. It acquires data from digital instrumentation and stores the data in an Oracle database.
- SIS, the Species Information System, allows users to enter, retrieve, and manipulate stock assessment and status determination data. Users also use SIS to produce reports for analysis and evaluation. SIS directly supports NOAA’s annual Report to Congress on the Status of U.S. Fisheries.
Decontamination Field Tests for EPA
CSS staff helped design, plan for, and implement field tests of decontamination technologies and methods using MB for EPA’s Consequence Management Advisory Division.
