Item Identification

Title: Commercial Fish Landings
Short Name: CommercialFishLandings
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2018-08-15
Abstract:

This dataset contains reported U.S. domestic fishery landings volumes and values for commercially-landed finfish and shellfish (invertebrate) species that are landed and sold by U.S. fishermen in coastal states and territorial possessions including American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Domestic fishery landings data are compiled by NMFS annually from data collected by state or regional partners to summarize the quantities, shown in round weight (except mollusks which are in meat weight) in units of thousands of pounds, and the values (exvessel) of U.S. landings in thousands of dollars.

Purpose:

To support coastal and ocean planning and other activities pursuant to the Energy Policy Act, Coastal Zone Management Act, Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, National Environmental Policy Act, Rivers and Harbors Act and the Submerged Lands Act.

Supplemental Information:

The native coordinate system for this layer is WGS 1984 World Mercator (ESPG: 3395). Please note: all MarineCadastre.gov data served by the NOAA Office for Coastal Management and hosted through Esri REST services are in the WGS 1984 Web Mercator Auxiliary Sphere (EPSG: 3857) projection.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 791210
Description:

Download tabular NMFS annual commercial fishery landings data for coastal U.S. states and territories for the most recent five years available and convert into a file geodatabase table (CFL_Annual_Table). Set null, blank/empty, negative, or zero annual weight or revenue values used to indicate that no information was reported for the species to "Not Reported". For each state, species with multiple entries for a single year were summed on annual weight and on revenue and then duplicate records removed. Calculate the annual price per pound from the annual revenue in thousands of dollars divided by annual weight in thousands of pounds. If either annual weight or revenue was not reported, the annual price per pound was set to "Not Reported".

Process Date/Time: 2018-09-01 00:00:00

Process Step 2

CC ID: 791211
Description:

Join the CFL_Annual_Table attributes to the CFL_States features on state.

Process Date/Time: 2018-08-08 00:00:00

Process Step 3

CC ID: 791212
Description:

Using the CFL_Annual_Table, for each state, calculate the five-year average weight, revenue, and price per pound by species, and then extract records corresponding to the top 5 finfish and top 2 invertebrate species by average weight, by average revenue, and by average price per pound (CFL_TopSpeciesByState_Table). Delete any identical CFL_TopSpeciesByState_Table records.

Process Date/Time: 2018-09-01 00:00:00

Process Step 4

CC ID: 791213
Description:

Merge the CoastalStates, StateWaters, and SLA_to_50NM_Clipped feature classes, then dissolve resulting polygons so there is one feature per state attributed with the StateName (CFL_States feature class). Resolve any topology or geometry issues by repairing geometries.
