Coastal Pelagic Species (CPS)
Highly Migratory Species (HMS) Project


The CPS/HMS Project manages coastal pelagic species (Pacific sardine, Pacific mackerel, market squid, and other species) and highly migratory species (tunas, swordfish, sharks, and other species). Management activities and functions include collection and analysis of fishery data, assessment of species status, generation of management recommendations, and evaluation of existing regulations. CPS/HMS Project staff coordinates state management of CPS/HMS species with multiple state, national and international managing bodies.
