West Coast Groundfish Trawl Quota Share Owner Survey

Data collection to support a sustainable U.S. West Coast groundfish fishery.

The Northwest Fisheries Science Center and the Pacific Fishery Management Council developed the Quota Share Owners Survey to better understand the participation of quota share owners in the West Coast trawl groundfish fishery. The Quota Share Owners Survey collects two types of data:

  1. Descriptions of each quota share owner's fishery participation.
  2. Quota sale earnings. 

Listed below is an example Quota Share Owners Survey. You will need to complete this survey as part of your annual online permit renewal process
