Monitoring and Reporting in Alaska

A variety of management regimes exist in Alaskan fisheries and each relies on a range of data sources and different suite of monitoring tools that vary due to differences in the designs of the management program, the data needed for management, and the characteristics of the fishery. A combination of observer data and a suite of electronic reporting and electronic monitoring tools provide comprehensive information to support sustainable management in Alaskan groundfish and halibut fisheries.
