Notes:
1.  This report summarizes fixed gear IFQ landings reported by Registered Buyers.  At sea discards excluded, confiscations included.
2.  Halibut weights are reported in net (headed and gutted) pounds.  Sablefish weights are reported in round pounds.             
3.  'Vessel Landings' include the number of landings by participating vessels reported by IFQ regulatory area.  Each such landing may include harvests  from more than one IFQ Permit Holder. Since there may be more than one area represented in any particular offload, the sum of vessel landings will necessarily be greater than the 'Total number of vessel offloads'.
4.  'Vessel Offload' is the removal of fish from a harvesting vessel to (or by) a specific Registered Buyer on a particular date/time.
5.  Due to over- or underharvest of TAC and/or rounding, percentages may not total to 100%.
6.  Data are derived from initial data entry procedures and are preliminary.  Future review and editing may result in minor changes.
7.  Asterisks denote confidential data.
8. Landings in areas 4C and 4D have been combined, since 4C allocation may be fished in 4C or 4D. Harvest is debited from the account for the reported harvest area, but the combination in this report is a better representation of activity in the 4C/4D areas.

1.  This report summarizes fixed gear CDQ landings reported by Registered Buyers.  At sea discards excluded, confiscations included
2.  Halibut weights are reported in net (headed and gutted) pounds.
3.  'Vessel Landings' include the number of landings by participating vessels reported by IFQ regulatory area.  Each such landing may include harvests from more than one CDQ Permit Holder.
4. 4D allocation may be fished in 4D or 4E. Harvest is debited from the account for the reported harvest area. This may cause 4E landings to appear overharvested and 4D underharvested.
5. 4C allocation may be fished in 4C or 4D. Harvest is debited from the account for the reported harvest area. This may cause 4D landings to appear overharvested and 4C underharvested.
6.  Due to over- or underharvest of TAC and/or rounding, percentages may not total to 100%.
