What we do

Western Pacific Regional Fishery Management Council

is one of eight regional fishery management councils established by Congress in 1976. Under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, it has authority over fisheries seaward of state/territorial waters of Hawai‘i and the US Pacific Islands. Management decisions are based on science and informed by traditional knowledge and practices of the local users for the benefit of the island communities and the nation.
