On June 4, 2021, U.S. Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo was joined by Senator Edward Markey, Congressman William Keating, State Senator Susan Moran, and State Representative Dylan Fernandez came to Woods Hole to visit WHOI’s Iselin Marine Facility and NOAA’s Northeast Fisheries Science Center. The Secretary came at the invitation of Sen. Markey to learn more about what makes this tiny village a global leader in ocean research, exploration, and education. Woods Hole is an active, broad-based scientific community and the center of critical efforts to fight climate change, support coastal communities, and help support a blue economy.
