|Title:||Southeast Region Finfish Age Database|
Data set includes port samples of reef fish species collected from commercial and recreational fishery landings in the U.S. South Atlantic (NC - FL Keys). The data set serves as an inventory of samples stored at the NMFS Beaufort Laboratory as well as final processed data. Information that may be inlcuded for each sample is trip level information, species, size meansurements, age, sex and reproductive data.

Please contact the data steward
|Data Access Constraints:||
Waiver Needed. Magnuson-Stevens Confidential--50 CFR, Part 600. Title IV, Section 402, subsection b. The referenced data set is made up of observations on individual fish and reports of catch and effort collected from individual commercial fishing vessels .
|Quality Control Procedures Employed:||
The electronic data in the database are compared to hard-copy data sheets and information recorded on physical sample containers. If the data do not match, the originator of the sample and data are contacted for corrections.
|Have Resources for Management of these Data Been Identified?:||No|
|Approximate Percentage of Budget for these Data Devoted to Data Management:||0|
|Do these Data Comply with the Data Access Directive?:||Yes|
|Is Access to the Data Limited Based on an Approved Waiver?:||Yes|
|If Distributor (Data Hosting Service) is Needed, Please Indicate:||No|
|Approximate Delay Between Data Collection and Dissemination:||0|
|If Delay is Longer than Latency of Automated Processing, Indicate Under What Authority Data Access is Delayed:||
The data are not directly accessible due to their confidential/sensitive nature. This data is currently wavered under the current NOAA guidelines for relational databases.

|If To Be Determined, Unable to Archive, or No Archiving Intended, Explain:||
The archival process is currently under development.
|Approximate Delay Between Data Collection and Archiving:||0|
|How Will the Data Be Protected from Accidental or Malicious Modification or Deletion Prior to Receipt by the Archive?:||
The data resides on a secure government network requiring multi-factor authentication for network access.
Process Step 1
Physical age samples are received from port agents located from North Carolina through east coast of Florida and Florida Keys. Electronic data corresponding to samples are obtained from originator of the samples. The data are formatted to uniform codes, based on the NMFS TIP system codes, and uploaded to Access data base file. The data recorded on the sample containers is verified with electronic data. If samples match, the data is recieved into the database. If there are discrepancies, the port agent is notified and data are corrected. If the sample data cannot be rectified, then the physical sample cannot be used.
