It is the NOAA Fisheries yearbook of fishery statistics for the United States. It provides a snapshot of data, primarily at the national level, on U.S.

recreational catch and commercial fisheries landings and value. Commercial fisheries in the EBS represent over 40% of fish landed annually in US waters, and the system has long supported one of the largest fisheries in the world: walleye pollock (Gadus chalcogrammus; hereafter pollock; FAO, ; Fissel et al., ).

In addition to pollock, key commercial fisheries include King, snow and Tanner crab. The Pacific Fishery Management Council (PFMC), Regional analysis of the US groundfish fishery book entity that manages fisheries in waters miles off the West Coast, manages the various groundfish species as a single, coastwide management unit.

Harvest levels are set either as a single quota or as two regional quotas. This has led to disproportionate landing trends along the Pacific coast.

Nineteen finfish species are included in the NFMP; sixteen Regional analysis of the US groundfish fishery book them also occur in the GFMP.

Many groundfish species are important to commercial and/or recreational fisheries. The Regional Council system was designed to allow regional, participatory governance by knowledgeable people with a stake in fishery management.

The eight Regional Councils develop management plans for marine fisheries in waters seaward of state waters of their individual regions.

The Northeast multispecies fishery is managed by the New England Fishery Management Council (NEFMC) and the federal NOAA Fisheries. As with other countries, the nautical miles ( km) exclusive economic zone (EEZ) off the coast of the United States gives its fishing industry special fishing rights.

It covers million square kilometres ( million sq mi), which is the second largest zone in the world, exceeding the land area of the United States.

The eight U.S. regional fishery management councils are the primary forums for developing conservation and management measures for U.S. marine regional councils recommend management measures for fisheries in the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ); which are subject to approval and implemented by the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS).

This Fishery Management Plan (FMP) governs groundfish fisheries of the Gulf of Alaska (GOA). The FMP management area is the United States (U.S.) exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of the No rth Pacific Ocean, exclusive of the Bering Sea, between the eastern Aleutian Islands at Ε W.

There are several leading hypotheses about the sources of the continued depletion of groundfish stocks: 1) extirpation of local stocks, which has impeded recovery; 2) a lack of adequate forage base – including Atlantic herring and alewives, 3) lack of groundfish protection during critical life stages, including for juvenile and spawning.

NOAA Fisheries is pleased to present the Report to Congress on the Status of U.S. Fisheries under the science-based framework established by the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSA).

The report highlights work toward the goal of maximizing fishing opportunities while ensuring the sustainability of fisheries and fishing communities.

Demersal fish, also known as groundfish, live and feed on or near the bottom of seas or lakes (the demersal zone). They occupy the sea floors and lake beds, which usually consist of mud, sand, gravel or rocks. In coastal waters they are found on or near the continental shelf, and in deep waters they are found on or near the continental slope or along the continental rise.
