Title: Fishing Community Profile: Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (2017)
Status: In Work
Publication Date: 2017
Abstract:

To enable fisheries managers to comply with National Standard 8 (NS8), NMFS social scientists around the nation are preparing fishing community profiles that present the features and characteristics of such communities. PIFSC has published or is developing four such profiles: one each for Hawaii, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and American Samoa.

Purpose:

National Standard 8 (NS8) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fisheries Conservation and Management Act (MSA) requires that NMFS, in establishing fisheries conservation and management measures, take into account the importance of fishery resources to fishing communities in order to: (1) provide for the sustained participation of such communities; and, (2) to the extent practicable, minimize adverse economic impacts on such communities.
