Item Identification

Title: ALS.DISTANCE_CODE_ALS - The lookup table for the distance code in the Accumlated Landings System (ALS).
Short Name: DISTANCE_CODE_ALS
Status: In Work
Abstract:

Distance from Shore is a common element in determining fishing area and jurisdiction. Codes indicate range of nautical miles from shore within which fishing occurred.

Purpose:

To provide a lookup for distance from shore coding in the ALS.

Notes:

New codes and descriptions were added 4/9/2013.

Coding in this field is inconsistent.

• North Carolina – some apparent typos in 1964, in use from 1972-present. South Atlantic Shrimp has distance from 1978-1992.

• South Carolina – some apparent typos in 1964 and 1970. In use from 1972 – present. South Atlantic Shrimp have distance data from 1979-2000.

• Georgia – some apparent typos in 1964. In use from 1972 – present. South Atlantic shrimp have distance from 1978-2000.

• Florida – In Florida annual canvass data 1976-1996. In Florida South Atlantic shrimp from 1981-1992. No distance data after 1996.

• Alabama – some apparent typos in 1964. In use from 1973-2001.

• Mississippi – In use from 1973-2015

• Louisiana – In use from 1973-1993. Louisiana Menhaden (MN) from 1995-1997.

• Texas – From 1972-1977 and from 1984-1992.

• Gulf Shrimp (whichone=’GS’) None.

Other Citation Details:

Distance from shore data for ALS is primarily obtained through fishery-dependent data collection.
