Fig. H4.67.0 shows the boundaries of the Northeast Pacific (Major Fishing Area 67).|
A description of the area is as follows.
All marine waters of the Northeast Pacific bounded by a line commencing from a point on the mainland coast of Russia in the Western Bering Sea at 175°00'W longitude; thence in a northeasterly direction along the coast to Mys Dazhneva; thence across the Bering Strait in an easterly direction to Cape Prince of Wales; thence in a southeasterly direction along the mainland coast of Alaska, Canada and USA to 40°30'N latitude; thence due west to 130°00'W longitude; thence due south to 40°00'N latitude; thence along this parallel to 175°00'W longitude; thence due north along this meridian to the point of departure.
There are no subdivisions of the Northeast Pacific (Major Fishing Area 67) that are recognized for the collection of STATPAC catch and effort data.
