Fishery Plans and Publications

The Western Pacific Regional Fishery Management Council managed five Fishery Management Plans (FMPs) until 2010, when the five new Fishery Ecosystem Plans (FEPs) were approved.  The FEPs shift management focus from species-based to place-based.

The links on the left will take you to the original FMPs and subsequent management measures, and the FEPs with their subsequent management measures.
