Fisheries Economics of the United States Report, 2017
National Marine Fisheries Service. Fisheries Economics of the United States, 2017. U.S. Dept. of Commerce. NOAA Technical Memorandum NMFS-F/SPO-219
Published each fall, Fisheries Economics of the United States takes a detailed look at the economic performance of commercial and recreational fisheries and other marine-related sectors on a state, regional, and national basis. It also describes how U.S. commercial and recreational fishing affects the economy, in terms of employment, sales, and value-added impacts. For each region, management highlights give a summary of stock status, updates on catch share programs, and other selected management issues. Economic performance indicators for catch share programs are also reported; these will be extended to include non-catch-share fisheries in the next edition.
Each report covers 10 years, and includes statistics on:
- Commercial fisheries (commercial fisheries landings, revenue, price trends).
- Recreational fisheries (recreational fishing effort, participation rates, expenditure information).
- Fishing-related industries (employer and non-employer establishment, payroll, annual receipt information for fishing-related industries).
- Economic impact (employment, sales, value-added impacts).
