On Thursday May 12, NOAA Fisheries will share the findings from the 2021 Status of the Stocks report during a teleconference for media partners. The report provides an annual account of how well fishery management measures are working, and details which stocks are experiencing overfishing, are overfished or have been rebuilt.

Experts will also provide an overview of the status of U.S. fisheries in 2021, and will share new tools for the public to explore fisheries data, including economics impacts, landings totals and species distributions.
