Highly Migratory Species
Highly migratory species—including tunas, sharks, swordfish, and billfish—travel long distances and often cross domestic and international boundaries. Together with our partners, we develop, implement, and evaluate fisheries policies and regulations to sustainably manage these species in U.S. waters and abroad.
