Current HMS SAFE Report: U.S.-Canada Albacore Treaty Data Exchange

National Marine Fisheries Service and Department of Fisheries and Oceans – Canada collaborate through the Data Working Group (DWG) to develop a mutually agreed upon data summary of catch and landings of North Pacific albacore landed on west coast of Canada and the United States. The DWG has developed a Data Exchange Template, designed to provide relevant data to the delegations for the treaty between the United States and Canada on Pacific Coast Albacore Tuna vessels and Port Privileges. The summary tables are available here thanks to the respective governments’ willingness to allow public dissemination of this information. (As noted in the tables, the most recent year’s data are considered preliminary and may be subsequently updated.)
