Abstract
The United States of America has a free trade policy on all categories of fish and fishery products except canned tuna. Import deposits and licenses are not required by U.S. fish importers, and foreign exchange is freely obtainable to finance fish imports. Exporters of fish and fishery products to the United States, however, must pay close attention to several regulations governing imports to the United States. The opening section of this paper describes U.S. import regulations for fish and fishery products in general. The remaining sections focus attention on tuna commodity imports from the Pacific islands region in particular.
