Oceana explains the report
NOAA released the 2013 edition of its annual Fisheries of the United States Report, detailing an increase from 2012 in overall landings by volume and by revenue. New England and Alaska remained at the top of U.S. seafood rankings. New Bedford, Massachusetts retains its title as the most valuable port in the nation by revenue, while Dutch Harbor, Alaska is once again the largest port by volume. Elsewhere in the rankings, the commercial menhaden fishery leads along the Gulf and Atlantic coasts, being responsible for 5 of the nation's top 10 ports by volume. In the Western Pacific, which recently made headlines with the establishment of the world's largest marine monument - from which commercial fishing will be prohibited - Honolulu remains the region's most valuable port, and 6th most valuable nationwide.
