Northwest Fisheries Science Center (2007). Community Profiles for West Coast and North Pacific Fisheries. Report by National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). pp 617.

This document profiles 125 fishing communities in Washington, Oregon, California, New Jersey and California with basic social and economic characteristics. Various federal statutes, including the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act and the National Environmental Policy Act, among others, require federal agencies to examine the social and economic impacts of policies and regulations. These profiles can serve as a consolidated source of baseline information for assessing community impacts in these states. The profiles are provided in a narrative format with four sections: 1) People and Place, 2) Infrastructure, 3) Involvement in West Coast Fisheries, and 4) Involvement in North Pacific Fisheries. Census place-level geographies were used where possible to define communities, yielding 125 individual profiles.
