Pelagic Fisheries Research Program (PFRP)

Established in 1992, after an amendment expanded the Magnuson Fishery Conservation and Management Act (1976) to include "highly migratory fish," the Pelagic Fisheries Research Program (PFRP) was created "to provide scientific information on pelagic fisheries ... for use in development of fisheries management policies." Based at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, PFRP researches fish that live in "the near-surface waters of the ocean often far from shore," such as tuna, billfish, dolphinfish, and wahoo. The site summarizes research in biology, oceanography, statistics and modeling, genetics, economics, and socio-cultural factors. Visitors interested in learning more may want to refer to the bibliography of PFRP Project Publications and Manuscripts, a few of which are available for download in [.pdf] format. Recent slides from Hawaiian fisheries and a collection of links round out the site.
