2015 Assessment of the Atka Mackerel Stock in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands

February 02, 2015

Native Names: In the Aleut languages, Atka mackerel are known as tmadgi-{ among the Eastern and Atkan Aleuts and Atkan of Bering Island. They are also known as tavyi-{ among the Attuan Aleuts (Sepez et al. 2003).

Atka mackerel (Pleurogrammus monopterygius) are widely distributed along the continental shelf across the North Pacific Ocean and Bering Sea from Asia to North America. On the Asian side they extend from the Kuril Islands to Provideniya Bay (Rutenburg 1962); moving eastward, they are distributed throughout the Komandorskiye and Aleutian Islands (AI), north along the eastern Bering Sea (EBS) shelf, and through the Gulf of Alaska (GOA) to southeast Alaska.
