Summary

Abstract

Total groundfish catch information from the foreign and joint venture fishing operations in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands, Gulf of Alaska, and Washington-Oregon-California Regions for the years 1977-90. Information is summed by week, nation, area, vessel class, and species (also by company for joint venture operations in the years 1987-90). Provided information includes number of vessels processing fish (for years 1978 and 1982-90), number of days the vessels were on the fishing grounds, number of days observers were monitoring catches, the percentage of the days that were monitored, the foreign estimate of the catch, the observer estimate of the catch expanded to the number of days the vessels were on the grounds), and the official estimate (blend estimate) of the catch.

Data Attribute / Type Description
WEEKENDING_DATE
NUMBER
The foreign_blend data are a weekly summation of catch (except for 1977, when the data were summed on a monthly basis). The weekending_date is the date (YYMMDD) of the last day associated with the summation period.
NATION
VARCHAR2
The name of the nation(s) associated with each fishing operation. These nations are: BULGARIA, JAPAN, MEXICO, POLAND, PORTUGAL, PRC (People's Republic of China), ROK (Republic of Korea), TAIWAN, USSR (United Soviet Socialist Republic), WEST GERMANY, US-BULGARIA, US-ICELAND, US-JAPAN, US-POLAND, US-PORTUGAL, US-PRC, US-ROK, US-SPAIN, US-TAIWAN, US-USSR, US-W.GERMANY. All nation names beginning with US- are joint venture operations between the United States and a foreign nation.
AREA_NAME
VARCHAR2
The name of the International North Pacific Fish Commission area in which the catch was made. These areas are: BERING SEA 1, BERING SEA 2, BERING SEA 3, ALEUTIANS, SHUMAGIN, CHIRIKOF, SHELIKOF STR. (1986 only), KODIAK, YAKUTAT, S. E. ALASKA, VANCOUVER, COLUMBIA, EUREKA, MONTEREY.
SPECIES_NAME
VARCHAR2
The name of the species group. In the Bering Sea/Aleutians, the species groups are: ALL FLOUNDERS (1977 Japan only), ARROWTOOTH FL (1986-90), ATKA MACKEREL, FLOUNDER WO YFS, GREENLAND TURBOT (1986 only), HERRING, OTHER FISH, PACIFIC COD, POLLOCK, POP, ROCKFISH WO POP, ROCK SOLE (1989-90), SABLEFISH, SNAILS, SQUID, TURBOTS, YELLOWFIN SOLE. In the Gulf of Alaska, the species groups are: ALL FLOUNDERS, ATKA MACKEREL, DEMERSAL RF (1988 only), HERRING, OTHER FISH, PACIFIC COD, PELAGIC RF (1988 only), POLLOCK, POP, RATTAILS, ROCKFISH WO POP, SABLEFISH, SLOPE ROCKFISH (1988 only), SQUID, SS THORNYHEAD. In Washington-Oregon-California, the species groups are: ALL FLOUNDERS, ALL ROCKFISH (1977-79), FLATFISH DISC, JACK DISCARD, JACK MACKEREL, OTHER DISCARD, OTHER FISH, OTHER RF DISC, PACIFIC WHITING, POP, POP DISCARDS, ROCKFISH WO POP, SABLEFISH, SABLEFISH DIS, SHORTBELLY RF (1982 only). Refer to NOAA TECH.MEM. NMFS F/NWC-99 for changes that occurred within the species groups for years 1977-84. After 1984, very few changes occurred and are all noted here.
VESSEL_CLASS
VARCHAR2
The vessel type used in the fishing operations. In 1977-79, larger trawlers were separated by size into MED TRAWLER and LG TRAWLER. From 1980 on, larger trawlers were separated based on their ability to make surimi. If they could make surimi, they were SURIMI TRAWL; if not, they were LG FRZ TRAWL. Longliners were all listed as LONGLINER in 1977-79. From 1980 on, they were separated by target into LONGLINE COD (targeting Pacific cod) and LONGLINE SAB (targeting sablefish). From 1977-79, all surimi motherships were combined into SURIMI MSHIP. From 1980 on, each surimi mothership was classified separately (SURIMI MSHIP1, SURIMI MSHIP2, SURIMI MSHIP3, SURIMI MSHIP4, SURIMI MSHIP5). From 1977-85, all joint venture motherships were listed as a single vessel type (JV MSHIP). From 1986 on, joint venture motherships were separated by target and surimi capability (OTHER FREEZER JV, OTHER SURIMI JV, YELL/FLAT FRZ JV, YELL/FLAT SUR JV, POLL-BOT FRZ JV (1989 only), POLL-BOT SUR JV (1989 only), POLL-MID FRZ JV (1989 only), POLL-MID SUR JV (1989 only) [No joint ventures targeted pollock in 1990]). Three additional vessel types, JV/LG FRZ TRAWL, JV/SURIMI TRAWL, AND LL COD/JV MSHIP identified the portion of fish caught by a fishing vessel itself, in the same week that it was processing another vessel's catch in a joint venture operation. The other vessel types were: FREEZER MSHIP (no surimi capability), SNAILPOT, SMALL TRAWL.
COMPANY
CHAR
A code initiated in 1987 to differentiate between the different companies involved in joint venture operations. The first two digits identified the nationality of the processing vessel, and the second two digits identified different companies within that nationality. IJ designated Iceland, JA designated Japan, KS designated the Republic of Korea (ROK), PC designated the People's Republic of China (PRC), PL designated Poland, and UR designated the USSR. A list associating company name with company code is not currently available.
AREA_NUMBER

From 1977-85, the numbers (and areas) were: 51 (BERING SEA 1), 52 (BERING SEA 2), 53 (BERING SEA 3), 54 (ALEUTIANS), 61 (SHUMAGIN), 62 (CHIRIKOF), 63 (KODIAK), 64 (YAKUTAT), 65 (S.E.

In 1987-90, all fishing operations in BERING SEA 1 and BERING SEA 2 were recorded by sub-areas. Within BERING SEA 1, the sub-areas were: 511, 513, 514, 515, 516, 517. Within BERING SEA 2, the sub-areas were: 521, 522. All other areas had the same area numbers as in 1986. SHELIKOF STR (621) was only listed as a separate area in 1986.

OBSERVER_TONNAGE
NUMBER
The number of tons of the species group caught by the foreign vessels for the weekending_date, nation, area_number, vessel_class, and company (where applicable) as estimated and reported by the observers.
BLEND_TONNAGE
NUMBER
The best estimate of the number of tons of the species group caught by the foreign vessels for the weekending_date, nation, area_number, vessel_class, and company (where applicable). This value is either the foreign_tonnage or the observer_tonnage and which value is selected depends on the following algorithm. If the percent coverage is less than 20.0% (not rounded), the foreign_tonnage is selected. If the result of the foreign_tonnage divided by the observer_tonnage is between 0.9 and 1.1 (not rounded), the foreign_tonnage is selected. If neither of these conditions are met, the observer_tonnage is selected.
YR
NUMBER
The four digits of the year in which fishing occurred.
WEEK_DATE
DATE
The week_date is the weekending_date converted into a date format (MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS). Hours, minutes, and seconds are all 0.

Precision: 10
Scale: 3
Status: Active
Description:

The best estimate of the number of tons of the species group caught by the foreign vessels for the weekending_date, nation, area_number, vessel_class, and company (where applicable). This value is either the foreign_tonnage or the observer_tonnage and which value is selected depends on the following algorithm. If the percent coverage is less than 20.0% (not rounded), the foreign_tonnage is selected. If the result of the foreign_tonnage divided by the observer_tonnage is between 0.9 and 1.1 (not rounded), the foreign_tonnage is selected. If neither of these conditions are met, the observer_tonnage is selected.
