Text Alerts Available

You can now choose to receive texts from NOAA Fisheries' Greater Atlantic Regional Fisheries Office (GARFO) on your cell phone. Alerts will include information about emergency actions, area openings and closings, and possession limit adjustments. To ensure that you don't receive too many texts, we are limiting the texts we send to only time sensitive notifications. This means that you will receive about 10-12 texts per year, and you may not receive one for some time.

If you would like to receive text messages from the GARFO, go to http://www.nero.noaa.gov/fish and complete the simple form. The information you submit will be anonymous, and no other information will be recorded. If you have any questions, would like to change your cell number, or stop getting text alerts, please text back or send an email to nmfs.gar.feedback@noaa.gov. You may also contact Olivia Rugo, Stakeholder Engagement, GARFO, at 978-675-2167 or email her at Olivia.rugo@noaa.gov

Thank you!
