Fisheries Program

The Bureau of Statistics and Plans is the local agency with the responsibility and authority to monitor fish transshipment activities at Guam's ports of entry. The Planning Information Program administers the Interjurisdictional Fisheries Act (IFA) grant program to support and complement the Western Pacific Fisheries Information Network (WPacFIN) program in the collection, data entry, and reporting activities of large scale fisheries on Guam. The overall goal of the programs is to provide information to National Marine Fisheries Service and the Western Pacific Regional Fisheries Management Council in support of fisheries management and sustainability.
