Atlantic Highly Migratory Species Stock Assessment and Fisheries Evaluation Reports


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.
