Albacore Working Group

General Information

The Albacore Working Group (ALBWG) was established in 2005, but was preceded by the North Pacific Albacore Workshop which was established in 1974. The Working Group is made up of members from coastal states and fishing entities of the region and members from relevant intergovernmental fishery organizations.

The Albacore Working Group regularly assesses and analyses fishery and other relevant information to determine the stock status of the north Pacific albacore tuna, and to provide scientific information concerning conservation needs. The most recent stock assessment was completed in 2017.
