Pacific Fishery Management Council

Managing Pacific coast fisheries

Whether you are interested in fish because they’re your livelihood, your joy, your food, or your job, we have a way for you to get involved.

A transparent public process

The Pacific Fishery Management Council manages fisheries for approximately 119 species of salmon, groundfish, coastal pelagic species (sardines, anchovies, and mackerel), and highly migratory species (tunas, sharks, and swordfish) on the West Coast of the United States. We are one of eight regional fishery management councils established by Congress in 1976.
