Among the six very large and highly diverse fishing areas into which the Pacific Ocean is divided, recent changes in catch trends have occurred in the Northeast, Southwest and Eastern Central Pacific areas. In the Northeast Pacific, a catch decline has been noted since 2006 for both Canada and the United States of America, the only two countries catching significant quantities in this area. In the Southwest Pacific, the catch has decreased since 2006. In this area, New Zealand’s share of total catch was 73 percent in the period but it is noteworthy that 23 percent was caught by European and North Asian vessels, which travel to this distant area to target pelagic and demersal fish and cephalopods.
