  • Description:
    This is the second time that U.S. albacore jig fishing vessels have conducted exploratory fishing efforts for albacore in the western North Pacific. A major objective of the survey was to evaluate the possibility for jig fishing for albacore in the western Pacific, especially in the vicinity of the Emperor Seamount chain near 35°N and 170°E. Secondary objectives were to gain information for use in migration studies of North Pacific albacore and the association of albacore with oceanographic features. Also, the vessels carried on fishing operations to assess and evaluate the possibilities for jig fishing for albacore and other tunas along the Hawaiian Island chain. The fishing vessels, Typhoon with Captain Keith Coburn and Santa Ines with Captain Danny Romero, participated in the exploratory fishing operations. One of these was chartered by the American Fishermen's Research Foundation (Typhoon) and the other by the Pacific Tuna Development Foundation (Santa Ines).
