Item Identification

Title: Commercial Landing System
Short Name: Commercial [Domestic] Landing System
Status: In Work
Publication Date: 1945
Abstract:

The Fisheries Statistics Division of the NOAA Fisheries has automated data summary programs that anyone can use to rapidly and easily summarize U.S. commercial fisheries landings.

These programs allow you to query our commercial fishery data bases and summarize United States domestic commercial landings in several formats. Domestic fishery landings are those fish and shellfish that are landed and sold in the 50 states by U.S. fishermen and do not include landings made in U.S. territories or by foreign fishermen. You can summarize the pounds and dollar value of commercial landings by your choice of years, months, states and species for the years 1990 onwards. The volume and value of 1950 onwards landings can be summarized by: years, states and species; by years, states, species and fishing gears; or years, states, species, finfish or shellfish groups, and price per pound.

Purpose:

To make available to the public data on U.S. domestic commercial fisheries landings. Landings are searchable via a dynamic query on the ST1 website, and are included in various reports including Fisheries of the United States and an annual report to the FAO.
