The commercial fishery is an industry of relative importance in the United States. In 1976, landings by U.S. vessels at U.S. ports amounted to 5.4 billion pounds and were valued at 1.4 billion dollars (figure 1). In spite of the economic significance of the industry, only recently has any notable national policy been developed which addresses itself to the problem of managing marine fishery resources.
