The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Southeast Regional Office headquarters will be moving to the University of South Florida (USF)'s campus in downtown St. Petersburg, FL, in early 2005. The NMFS is an agency of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), U.S. Department of Commerce.

"We look forward to the increased interaction between agencies when we become neighbors on campus," said Lisa Robbins, director of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) St. Petersburg Science Center, also located in downtown St. Petersburg.

Robbins presented an overview of the USGS Florida Integrated Science Centers (FISC) to approximately 27 NMFS employees during a "Lunch 'n' Learn" meeting. A NOAA representative will make a complementary presentation at a USGS "Lunch 'n' Learn" session before moving to the USF's St. Petersburg campus.

Most of the NMFS employees in attendance were biologists. NMFS employees were curious about possible partnerships with the USGS. In the past, NOAA has partnered with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the USGS, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) to conduct airborne topographic lidar (light detection and ranging) mapping. NMFS scientists were interested in obtaining USGS maps and data sets.

The mission of the National Marine Fisheries Service is stewardship of the Nation's living marine resources. Through conservation and wise use, these resources and their habitat can be managed to benefit the Nation without jeopardizing options for the future.
