NOAA Fisheries produces an annual Stock Assessment and Fisheries Evaluation (SAFE) Report that reviews the current status of Atlantic HMS fish stocks (tunas, swordfish, billfish, and sharks) and describes the year’s fishery management accomplishments. The report—required under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act—provides the public with information on the latest developments in Atlantic HMS management.
HMS SAFE Reports are available back to 2000. If you’d like a copy of an older report, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or the Highly Migratory Species Management Division at:
