Fishing Communities of the U.S., 2006
Fishing Communities of the U.S., 2006 is the first volume in this new periodic series. It reports descriptive demographic data on a subset of each coastal state’s commercial fishing communities and ports, as well as descriptive geographic information and other social indicator data for each state. It is a companion to Fisheries Economics of the U.S., 2006. The purpose of the publication is to provide the public with easily accessible information about the Nation’s fishing communities and the states where they are located. Up to ten communities and ports per state were selected by experts in each region primarily on the basis of commercial landings data for 2006. These communities are not necessarily “fishing communities” as defined by the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act.
