​If you’re interested in what’s going on in the U.S. fishing industry – or more accurately, what was going on before 2015 because there’s a lag between when the fish are caught and when the data is made available on the internet – look at the latest FishNet-USA, After 39 Years of NOAA/NMFS management (at http://www.fishnet-usa.com/39.pdf). I charted the value of landings, in inflation adjusted dollars, nationally and for the New England, Middle Atlantic, South Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and Pacific regions from 1950 to 2014 (and did some manipulations which masked the effects of some of the highest value fisheries because their inclusion makes it difficult to gauge what’s going on with the less valuable fisheries). This FishNet was a re-examination of apparent trends that I last did with 2010 data, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that overall landings had increased significantly. Unfortunately it can’t be said that all fisheries and all regions were doing better than they were, but for the period from 2010 to 2014 things were generally looking up.
