The two species of herring discussed at this symposium have supported commercial fisheries worldwide for centuries. In the Atlantic Ocean fishing pressure increased to the point of serious depletion of herring stocks. Some of the stocks recovered in the last 20 years because of effective management. Scientists managers, and policy makers at the symposium explored new developments in population regulation and stock structure, considered harvest policy evaluation, and reported recent research on the early life history of Atlantic and Pacific herring. The symposium took place in Anchorage, Alaska, in 1990.
