Tuna species, skipjack, yellowfin, concerted efforts, forestry industry

Much of Puerto Rico’s original forest cover was cut by 1900. Despite concerted efforts after 1935 to replant trees, the forestry industry remains small. Commercial fishing plays a relatively minor role in Puerto Rico’s economy. Tuna species caught include yellowfin, skipjack, and bluefin. Small-scale freshwater fish farming is a growing economic activity. Fish raised include bass, bluegill, and catfish.
