About the Western Pacific Regional Fishery Management Council
The Western Pacific Regional Fishery Management Council (Council) is one of eight regional fishery management councils established by the Magnuson Fishery Conservation and Management Act of 1976. Amended in 1996 to prevent overfishing, minimize by catch and protect fish stocks and habitat, it is now called the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSA). The Council is also an IUCN Member.
