Coastal pelagic species

Coastal pelagic species managed by the Pacific Council include northern anchovy, market squid, Pacific sardine, Pacific mackerel, and jack mackerel. Harvesters mainly use purse seine gear, although other types of net gear (drum seines, lampara nets, and dip nets) are sometimes used.
