Document Description
The SWFSC in La Jolia, California, managers and conducts research involving Pacific fisheries and marine mammal research for the protection and management of these resources throughout the Eastern Pacific and Antarctica. The existing SWFSC facility, built in 1964, is adjacent to a coastal bluff that is undergoing severe erosion and retreat. NOAA proposes to construct a new roughly 124,000 sf SWFSC building at a 3.3 acre undeveloped site on the UCSD Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) campus to replace existing SWFSC facility. Buildings B and C at the existing SWFSC would be demolished and Buildings A and D would be returned to UCSD/SIO for possible future research/academic use.
