Pacific Whiting Treaty

Management of the coastal stock of Pacific whiting is accomplished through a bilateral agreement between the United States and Canada, known as the Pacific Whiting Treaty. The agreement allocates a set percentage of the harvest quota to American and Canadian fishermen. Currently, the United States harvests nearly 74 percent of the annual quota and Canada the remaining 26 percent.
