    The Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission (WCPFC) Tuna Fishery Yearbook presents annual catch estimates in the WCPFC Statistical Area from to The tables of catch statistics cover the main commercial tuna and billfish species caught in the region: albacore (Thunnus alalunga), bigeye (Thunnus obesus), skipjack (Katsuwonus pelamis), yellowfin (Thunnus albacares), black.   The eastern Pacific Ocean is home to some of the world’s most valuable and productive tuna fisheries. As The Pew Charitable Trusts noted in its report “Netting Billions: A Global Valuation of Tuna,” the value of tuna fishing in the eastern Pacific Ocean was over $ billion to fishermen in the region and more than $ billion at the final point of sale.

    U.S. harvest of yellowfin tuna in the Pacific Ocean makes up only a small percentage of the yellowfin tuna harvested worldwide. In , all commercial landings of Pacific yellowfin tuna in the western and central Pacific Ocean totaled approximately million pounds, with purse seine fisheries accounting for 51 million pounds of the total catch. Yellowfin tuna Regional fidelity, genetic research suggest there may be multiple populations of yellowfin tuna in the eastern Pacific Ocean (Minte-Vera et al. ).

    Albacore tuna is a migratory species caught by a number of different countries. Australia imports fresh 'tuna' from the Pacific and Indian Oceans. There are concerns from fisheries scientists that stocks in the Pacific Ocean will be overfished in coming years, as the rate of fishing is currently too high. The U.S. coastal purse seine fleet operating in the eastern Pacific Ocean typically fish off California for small pelagic species such as sardine and anchovy and sometimes catch bigeye tuna when warm water from the south brings bigeye tuna within their range. Fishing gear used to catch Pacific bigeye tuna rarely contacts the seafloor so habitat.
