Economic Data Collection Reporting
Monitoring the economic effects of the West Coast Groundfish Trawl Fishery catch share program.
All participants of the West Coast Groundfish Trawl Fishery must complete an annual Economic Data Collection (EDC) form as required by regulation 50 CFR 660.114. We aggregate and analyze the information received from fishery participants and report it annually to the Pacific Fishery Management Council.
Fisheries Economics Explorer (FISHEyE)
FISHEyE is an interactive tool for exploring, analyzing, and downloading data collected by the EDC Program about the West Coast Groundfish Trawl Catch Share Program. There are currently two modules, the Performance Metrics Module and the Whiting Module. Data available in the Performance Metrics Module are summarized by sector, and include vessel or company characteristics, costs, revenue, labor, and economic impacts. Whiting purchase and production data are summarized for catcher processors, motherships, and shorebased processors in the Whiting Module.
