Jun 22,  · On the West Coast, such management has brought back salmon runs that were shut in emergency action; it has rebuilt Pacific Whiting Stocks, it has halted and reversed the critical decline in certain species of rockfish, and as a result, virtually all Pacific Coast groundfish are now not only MSC certified, but celebrated by Chefs who follow the.

    Shellfish displaced groundfish as the dominant fishery and, although it produced fewer processing jobs, the shellfish boom brought a record-breaking increase in Atlantic landed value, from $ million in to $ billion in In the wake of the groundfish collapse, the federal fisheries department faced budget cuts in the mids. of non-groundfish fishing effort. Since VMS units are required on all West Coast fishing vessels that have the potential to interact with groundfish, the data can be used to assess the location of fishing effort targeting other important West Coast fisheries such as Dungeness crab, salmon, and albacore.
