Total Estimated Average Annual Catch of Reef Fish, 2003-2013 - Hawaii

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

Nearshore fisheries in the Main Hawaiian Islands encompass a diverse group of fishers using a wide array of gears and targeting many different species. Communities in Hawaii often rely on these fisheries for economic, social, and cultural services. However, the stress from overfishing can cause ecosystem degradation and long-term economic loss. This layer represents the estimated average annual catch of reef fish by all gear types and fishers (kg/ha). It is the summed total of the other Ocean Tipping Points (OTP) fishing layers (Commercial Total, Non-Commercial Shore-based Total, and Non-Commercial Boat-based Total). Commercial catch data come from the State of Hawaii Division of Aquatic Resources (DAR) over the years 2003-2013. Non-commercial catch data were estimated from Marine Recreational Information Program (MRIP) combined fisher intercept and phone survey data from 2004-2013. For all fishing layers, OTP accounted for marine protected areas (MPAs) where fishing is prohibited and de facto MPAs (e.g., military danger zones) where access is restricted. For more information on the methodology used to map catch from different sources and by individual gear types, see their respective data layers. See also McCoy (2015) and McCoy et al.
