Fishery Bulletin Archived Issues: 1881-1959 (vol. 1-59)

Fishery Bulletin is available in PDF format for volumes 1-59 below; other volumes can be found at these additional archive page links:

1960-1979 (vol. 60-77) | 1980-1998 (vol. 78-96) | 1999 (vol. 97)-present

PDFs for the volumes published from 1881-1998 were first created by the NOAA Central Library by scanning the original printed documents and saving the scans as PDF image files (read more about the library's document rescue project by clicking here). We then took those scanned PDF image files and used OCR software to create searchable PDFs for all of these volumes. For information on viewing and troubleshooting PDF files, please see below. There are a few volumes that we are still processing to make searchable;for those, we have included a link to the original image PDF file at the NOAA Central Library. All missing volumes should be uploaded and searchable on this site by mid-October 2009.

If you do not already have this program on your computer, you can temporarily leave the National Marine Fisheries Service web site and download it. (Please note that reference to trade names or commercial firms does not imply endorsement by the National Marine Fisheries Service.) Also please be aware that many of the files are large and graphic-intensive and thus will be slow to display. Click on the link above to go to the Contents for a particular issue, then click on the page number from the Contents page to view the article PDF file.

Having problems viewing files? If you have previously installed Adobe Acrobat Reader on your computer but have problems with viewing any of these files, please upgrade your software by downloading the latest version, then try accessing the files again. Also, if you are using Internet Explorer as your web browser and have problems with the display freezing or other errors in viewing or printing, please refer to the technical support document "Freeze or Error in Internet Explorer for Windows When Viewing PDF File" on the Adobe web site at http://www.adobe.com/support/techdocs/2d7a.htm. Among other solutions, this document advises users to turn off the "Web browser integration" under "Preferences: General" in Acrobat Reader. If you still have problems, please e-mail us with the volume number and paper that you are attempting to download, the error message you are getting, and the browser (Firefox, IE, Safari, etc.) version and system (MAC OS, Windows, etc) you're using.
