Monthly Commercial Landings of Major Commercial Species for all Years

* This group includes species that comprise a very small portion of the catch, unidentified tunas, and apparent misidentifications. Because of the small amount of catch, and the tendency of vendors to throw in the dogtooth tuna with this group (although it is not actually a tuna), this group is combined with “other scombrids” in some of the charts.

* Recent data may change as more data are collected and errors are corrected.
