I found bellow solution to your SSL Cert issue
This is necessary with Java 7 and a TLSv1.2 site.
I checked the site with:
openssl s_client -connect www.st.nmfs.noaa.gov:443
OpenSSL 1.0.2l 25 May 2017
and got the result:
Protocol : TLSv1.2
Cipher : ECDHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384
Please note that older openssl version on my mac did not work so I had to use the macports one.
