Item Identification

Title: TRIP INTERVIEW PROGRAM (TIP). Dockside commercial fishermen Interview/trip biodata collection
Status: In Work
Abstract:

This data set contains data on the lengths and weights of individually sampled fish and shellfish. These size-frequency data are collected as part of a shore-based sampling program (i.e., Trip Interview Program, TIP). In addition to measuring and weighing fish, the port samplers collect hard parts (otoliths, spines, etc.) and tissue samples that are used to determine the age, sex, reproductive stage, and other life history parameters. The dock-side sampling for this program is conducted at ports located in coastal areas in the South Atlantic (North Carolina through Florida Keys) and Gulf of Mexico as well as Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. The field biologists visit docks and fish houses to sample the catches, as well as interview fishermen to collect information on the fishing effort and locations of the trip. Thus, the TIP database contains catch and effort data for the fishing trip, as well as size frequency data for individual species caught on the trip.

Purpose:

Support stock assessment

Notes:

Also included with this data set are materialized views which were created to make data extractions easier by pre-joining the tables so someone would only need to use 1 table/view for their analysis.

Access Information

Security Class: Sensitive
Security Handling Description:

Access to confidential data is within agency or by special permission.

Data Access Policy:

Access limited to those entering data and users inside the ganecy or those with special permission.

Data Access Procedure:

Access to tables is granted by DBA in the SEFSC.

Data Access Constraints:

Waiver Needed

Data Use Constraints:

Collection targets fisheries in the EEZ, so inshore species may be under represented in data.

Metadata Use Constraints:

No constraint.

Data Quality

Quality Control Procedures Employed:

Depends upon partner providing the data and year(s) considered. Data proofing instituted for federal samplers in 2010. Validation procedures in data entry system since early 1990s. Automated quality control scans started in 2015.

Data Management

Have Resources for Management of these Data Been Identified?: Yes
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:

This data is currently wavered under the current NOAA guidelines for relational databases.

Actual or Planned Long-Term Data Archive Location: To Be Determined
If To Be Determined, Unable to Archive, or No Archiving Intended, Explain:

None

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 database server only accessible through the NMFS network requiring separate multi-factor authentication for both network and database access.
