Entity Information

Entity Type: Data Table
Active Version?: Yes
Schema Name: JBENNETT
Description:

This table is a compilation of data entered into the Caribbean Commercial Landings (CCL) data set. It contains sensitive detailed information from the logbook reports submitted by the fishers to the USVI DFW. The table may be accessed through the APEX application on the web by those having proper credentials. The data are currently collected from 2 form types. One for St. Thomas/St. John and the other for St. Croix, USVI.

Change Summary:

Prior to the adoption of the current reporting forms, there were 3 forms. One for St. Croix and two for St. Thomas (one for traps only and one for the remaining gear types: Hook and Line, Dive gear, and Nets). In July 2016 the St. Thomas forms were consolidated into a single form. There have been some species and gears added since the original forms in 2011, but the data set structure has remained the same. See the parent entity for more details.

Access Information

Security Class: Sensitive
Security Classification System:

Password Restricted. Rule of 3: Data summaries must include at least 3 dealers to be considered non-sensitive. See:

NOAA FORM 58-5 (1-84) TRANSMITTAL 127,

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

NOAA Administrative Order 216-100

NOAA ADMINISTRATIVE ORDER SERIES

Date of Issuance: July 26, 1994

Security Handling Description:

Sensitive data may only be released to entities having a signed non-disclosure agreement on file with the Director of the Information Resources Management Division (IRMD). Otherwise, Sensitivity may be suppressed by the following methods used for aggregation of sensitive data:

Data that are submitted as sensitive can be released to the public under the following circumstances:

1. Combined or aggregated data. Sensitive data can be released if the data are aggregated or summarized in a manner that prevents the identification of the person or organization that submitted the data. The "rule of three" and identification of majority allocations" are the primary data suppression methods.

2. Obscure (scramble) or remove the data identifier. For some types of data, sensitive data can be released as non-sensitive if the identity of the person, vessel, company, etc. that submitted the data is not included or is scrambled as part of the data that are released.

3. Submitter. Sensitive data collected under federal authority Can be released to the original entity (person, vessel, business, etc.) that submitted the data.

4. Sensitive data waived. The protection of sensitive data can be waived by the person or business that submitted the data.

Data Access Policy:

See NOAA Administrative Order 216-100

NOAA ADMINISTRATIVE ORDER SERIES

Date of Issuance: July 26, 1994

Data Access Procedure:

These standards and procedures apply to all employees of the SEFSC that need access to confidential fisheries statistics. This includes full time or term employees, contractors, volunteers, and/or other employees associated with the SEFSC, but not directly employed by either organization. Any SEFSC employee that needs or desires access to sensitive data must have read NOAA 216-100 and submitted a signed nondisclosure statement to the Director, Information Resources Management Division (IRMD). The non-disclosure statement must be approved by the Director of IRMD and maintained on file by IRMD. It is the responsibility of the Director of IRMD to certifY upon request, that a person or organization that requests access to sensitive data is authorized access to those data. All employees that have access to and/or use sensitive data (federal and non-federal) are responsible to protect those data from unauthorized access or release. Contractors or grantees that have an agreement with NMFS can be granted

access to sensitive data as an authorized user (See NOAA 216-100 1 Section 6.03e). It should be clearly understood that sensitive data cannot be released simply by an individual signing a nondisclosure statement. There must be a clear and demonstrable need for the confidential data that are requested as part of a contract or grant. Sensitive data can only be released for the specific contract or grant. Upon completion of the contract or grant, the recipient must either return the data or state that it has been destroyed. The contractor or grantee cannot use the data for any purpose other than the uses stated in the agreement. The Contracting Officers Technical Representative (COTR) or the Technical Monitor (TM) that has been assigned to the contract or grant, respectively, has the following responsibilities:

1. The COTR/TM has the responsibility to determine whether the contractor/grantee is eligible to receive the sensitive data that are requested in the agreement.

2. The COTR/TM has the responsibility to assure that all persons included in the agreement have read NOA 2l6-l00 and have signed a nondisclosure statement. A statement must be signed by each person that will have access to the sensitive data under the agreement, i.e., a blanket statement cannot be used for the company or firm. The COTR/TM also has the responsibility to make sure that the Director, IRMD has signed and approved the nondisclosure statement and the statement is on file with IRMD.

3. The COTR/TM has the responsibility to assure that sensitive data are not released in any publication, report, oral presentation, or other means to the public by the contractor or grantee.

Data Access Constraints:

The "rule of three" and identification of majority allocations" are the primary data suppression methods.

2. Obscure (scramble) or remove the data identifier. For some types of data, confidential data Can be released as non-confidential if the identity of the person, vessel, company, etc. that submitted the data is not included or is scrambled as part of the data that are released.

3. Submitter. Confidential (sensitive) data collected under federal authority Can be released to the original entity (person, vessel, business, etc.) that submitted the data.

4. Confidential (sensitive) data waived. The protection of confidential data can be waived by the person or business that submitted the data.
