Economic Data Report (EDR) Information



http://www.afsc.noaa.gov/race/media/photo_gallery/invert_files/Red_king_crab.htm

Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission (PSMFC) is the Data Collection Agent for the Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands Crab Rationalization (CR) Program. PSMFC and the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) administer the Crab Economic Data Report (EDR) data collection program under the guidance of the North Pacific Fishery Management Council (NPFMC). The EDR program collects annually reported cost, revenue, ownership, and employment data from harvest and processing sector participants in the CR fisheries. This information is necessary to monitor and assess the economic affects of the CR program and support rigorous economic analysis to promote the goals and objectives of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act and the Fishery Management Plan.

Participation in the EDR program is mandatory under Federal fisheries regulations 50 CFR Part 680.6 for all active vessel and processing sector participants in the CR Program fisheries. Further information can be obtained from NMFS Alaska Region Crab EDR webpage.
