|Title:||Coastal fisheries logbook data|
|Short Name:||Coastal fisheries logbook data|
This data set contains catch (landed catch) and effort for fishing trips made by vessels that have been issued a Federal permit for the Gulf of Mexico reef fish, South Atlantic snapper-grouper, sharks, and king and Spanish mackerel fisheries. Because the soak time for these fisheries is relatively short, it is infeasible to require fishermen to complete a separate form every time the gear is deployed. Thus, the catch and effort data for the entire trip are reported on a single form (i.e., one form per trip).
In 1990, the Southeast Fisheries Science Center (SEFSC) initiated a logbook program for vessels that held a federal vessel permit to fish in the Gulf reef fish fishery. A similar program was initiated in 1992 for vessels with federal permits in the snapper-grouper fishery in the South Atlantic region. These two programs combined to form the basis of the coastal fisheries logbook program. In 1993, this program was expanded to include vessels with federal permits in the shark fishery and in 1999 it was expanded to include vessels with commercial vessel permits in the king and Spanish mackerel fisheries.
The types of information required on this trip form includes information on the quantity (reported in pounds) caught for each species, the area of catch, the type and quantity of gear, the date of departure and return, the dealer and location (county and state where the trip is unloaded), the duration of the trip (time away from dock), an estimate of the fishing time, and the number of crew are included on this form.
There are two primary purposes for the implementation of this data collection program. One purpose is to provide a consistent data collection methodology for vessels that have Federal permits thought the Southeast Region. Second, the program was implemented to provide data on fishing effort, amount and location, and the associated catches for offshore trips so catch per unit effort could be calculated and evaluated as a reasonable index of abundance.

Not all of the catches of some shark and tuna species are reported to the Coastal Fisheries Logbook program.
Depending on the type of gear, some of the landed catches of sharks and tunas are reported to the pelagic longline logbook program
Some species of sharks are bottom or mid-water feeders and are caught with gear other than surface longlines and fishermen that use bottom longlines or handline gear report their catch and effort for these species on the coastal fisheries form. Thus, in order to get the total landings, both the pelagic longline and coastal fisheries logbook data set should be used.
