Title: Southeast Region 1972-1976 general canvass statistics
Short Name: Southeast Region 1972-1976 general canvass statistics
Status: Completed
Creation Date: 1972
Revision Date: 2006
Abstract:

This data set, in the table ALS.ALS_LANDINGS7278 contains annual and monthly quantities and values for all seafood products that are landed within the Southeast Region and sold by established seafood dealers and brokers. It complements the table ALS.ALS_LANDINGS. These types of fishery-dependent data, referred to as the general canvass landings statistics, have been collected by the NOAA Fisheries Service, National Marine Fisheries Service and its predecessor agency, the Bureau of Commercial Fisheries and more recently by our State partner agencies under the Cooperative Statistics Program. These data are available on computer since the early 1960's. The quantities and values that are reported in this data set include the annual and monthly landings that were initiated in 1972. Between 1962 and 1971, the data for were collected annually and not monthly. See the sections on Links for the reference to the annual general canvass landings.

The general canvass landings from 1972-1976 include quantities and values for all marine commercial landings and are identified by species (usually the local or common name). These data are collected from or reported by every seafood dealer or broker that is licensed by each state in the Southeast Region (North Carolina through Texas). Information on the gear and area of capture is available for most of the landings statistics in the data set (please see Issues for exceptions); however, they are summary records and do not contain information on the quantities of fishing effort or identify the fishermen or vessels that caught the fish or shellfish. This table contains data from FL-TX for the years 1972-1976. The ALS.ALS_LANDINGS table contains data for GA-NC for the same period as well as all the more recent monthly data.

In the early years, the data in this data set were collected by field agents employed by the Southeast Fisheries Science Center and assigned to local fishing ports. The field agents canvassed the seafood dealers and recorded the quantity and value for each species or species category from the dealer?s receipts. Based on interviews with dealers and fishermen as well as their own detailed knowledge of the fishing activity in the area, the agents would determine the type of fishing gear and area where the fishing occurred.

In addition, summarized data are extracted from the NOAA-SEFSC Gulf Shrimp System for commercial landings of shrimp species that are landed at ports in the coastal area of the Gulf of Mexico.

Purpose:

One of the chief purposes for these data is to provide estimates of the quantities and value of the marine commercial fishing industries throughout the United States as part of the gross national product for the nation. As the fishing industry continued to grow, the importance of this time series became obvious as a method to monitor the trends in commercial fishing activity. Although the initial methods of collecting the general canvass statistics have been replaced with the states? trip ticket programs, monthly summaries from the states? programs are provided to the Southeast Fisheries Science Center in order to maintain the time series established by the general canvass data set.

In addition to trends in landings statistics, the general canvass landings data provide comprehensive statistics for the total quantities of marine resources that are caught and brought ashore (landed) for all species in the Southeast Region

Supplemental Information:

These are fishery dependent data reported by industry. See Issues for additional caveats.

Issue:

CAVEATS for POUNDS: All landed quantities are converted to live or whole weight with the exceptions of oysters and clams, which are converted to pounds of meat. **Florida data are reported and stored in landed weight**. Factorrs are used by the data suppliers to convert landings to whole weight pounds. Generally, these follow established standards (see memo on 'Conversion Factors' issued January 12, 1987); however, conversion factors from Texas and North Carolina may vary from the official NMFS factors. The Texas and North Carolina conversion factors for are available from the states. Care must be used when converting these data back to landed weight. If the original conversion factors are not employed the weight will vary from that of the data supplier.

Author: John Poffenberger
Issue:

CAVEATS for SPECIES (NMFS_CODE): Some records are identified by generic categories, e.g., snappers, groupers, sharks, etc. and not by individual species. This is especially true for data collected in the earlier years. When long-term trends are required for individual species, adjustments or allocations of the landings for the generic categories need to be made. Examples of these types of analyses can be found in the Southeast Data, Assessment and Review (SEDAR) reports. See the address provided in the URLs section.

The ALS.ALS_LANDINGS7278 table (there are no 1977-78 data in the table...) complements the ALS.ALS_LANDINGS table for the years 1972-1976. The '7278' table contains monthly and annual data from the Gulf States including the FL East Coast while ALS.LANDINGS has the data for GA-NC for the same period (as well as all the more recent data).

Data Set (DS) Cross Reference Florida annual general canvass statistics

The Florida Annual general canvass table (ALS.ALS_GENERAL_CANVASS) contains only FL non-shrimp data for the years 1976-1996. The 1976 year duplicates the data for Florida from the ALS.ALS_LANDINGS7278 for that year.
