Title: Commercial Landings Project
Short Name: Commercial Landings Project
Status: In Work
Abstract:

These data consists of information on the quantity and value of seafood products caught by fishermen and sold to established seafood dealers or brokers. These data are reported by dealers or brokers to the fisheries agency in each state. The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) in the Southeast Region has established cooperative agreements with all of the states in the Southeast and rely on the states to collect and process these data.

Purpose:

To collect and process data used for the Fisheries Of The United States and to provide commercial fishery-dependent data for use in Stock Assessments.

Notes:

Serves As Parent Project for All Landings Systems, both current and historical.

Other Citation Details:

These are commercial fishery-dependent data, subject to review and edit by State as well as NOAA Fisheries (NMFS) personnel.

Supplemental Information:

In many coastal areas, trained field agents assist with the collection of fisheries statistics. These individuals are strategically located so they can maintain contact with the fishermen and are integrally involved with the fishing communities. Among other duties, these port agents provide information on the types of gear, fishing area and distance from shore for the general canvass data. The port agents are also involved in the collection of Gulf shrimp statistics, biological data collection and the operating unit survey.

Access Information

Security Class: Confidential
Security Classification System:

User ID/Password restricted. Rule of 3: Data summaries must include at least 3 dealers to be considered non-confidential. See:

NOAA FORM 58-5 (1-84) TRANSMITTAL 127,

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

NOAA Administrative Order 216-100

NOAA ADMINISTRATIVE ORDER SERIES

Date of Issuance: July 26, 1994

Security Handling Description:

Password restricted. Confidential data may only be released to entities having a signed non-disclosure agreement on file with the Director of the Information Resources Management Division (IRMD). Otherwise, confidentiality may be suppressed by the following methods used for aggregation of confidential data:

Data that are submitted as confidential can be released to the public under the following circumstances:

? Combined or aggregated data. Confidential data can be released if the data are aggregated or summarized in a manner that prevents the identification of the person or organization that submitted the data. The "rule of three" and identification of majority allocations" are the primary data suppression methods.

? Obscure (scramble) or remove the data identifier. For some types of data, confidential data Can be released as non-confidential if the identity of the person, vessel, company, etc. that submitted the data is not included or is scrambled as part of the data that are released.

? Submitter. Confidential data collected under federal authority Can be released to the original entity (person, vessel, business, etc.) that sUbmitted the data.

? Confidential data waived. The protection of confidential data can be waived by the person or business that submitted the data.

Data Access Policy:

See NOAA Administrative Order 216-100

NOAA ADMINISTRATIVE ORDER SERIES

Date of Issuance: July 26, 1994

Data Access Procedure:

These standards and procedures apply to all employees of the SEFSC that need access to confidential fisheries statistics. This includes full time or term employees, contractors, volunteers, and/or other employees associated with the SEFSC, but not directly employed by either organization. Any SEFSC employee that needs or desires access to confidential data must have read NOA 216-100 and submitted a signed nondisclosure statement to the Director, Information Resources Management Division (IRMD). The non-disclosure statement must be approved by the Director of IRMD and maintained on file by IRMD. It is the responsibility of the Director of IRMD to certifY upon request, that a person or organization that requests access to confidential data is authorized access to those data. All employees that have access to and/or use confidential data (federal and nonfederal) are responsible to protect those data from unauthorized access or release. Contractors or grantees that have an agreement with NMFS can be granted

access to confidential data as an authorized user (See NOA 216-100 1 Section 6.03e). It should be clearly understood that confidential data cannot be released simply by an individual signing a nondisclosure statement. There must be a clear and demonstrable need for the confidential data that are requested as part of a contract or grant. Confidential data can only be released for the specific contract or grant. Upon completion of the contract or grant, the recipient must either return the data or state that it has been destroyed. The contractor or grantee cannot use the data for any purpose other than the uses stated in the agreement. The Contracting Officers Technical Representative (COTR) or the Technical Monitor (TM) that has been assigned to the contract or grant, respectively, has the following? responsibilities:

? The COTR/TM has the responsibility to determine whether the contractor/grantee is eligible to receive the confidential data that are requested in the agreement.

? The COTR/TM has the responsibility to assure that all persons included in the agreement have read NOA 2l6-l00 and have signed a nondisclosure statement. A statement must be signed by each person that will have access to the confidential data under the agreement, i.e., a blanket statement cannot be used for the company or firm. The COTR/TM also has the responsibility to make sure that the Director, IRMD has signed and approved the nondisclosure statement and the statement is on file with IRMD.

? The COTR/TM has the responsibility to assure that confidential data are not released in any publication, report, oral presentation, or other means to the public by the contractor or grantee.

Issue:

These landings are affected by numerous factors which stock assessments may consider but which are not detailed within the landings alone; therefore the stock assessments are the more definitive word on the landings and status of a species or species group.
