Economic Data Reports

Collected by Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission

The purpose of the economic data collection is to aid the Council and NMFS in assessing the success of the Program and develop amendments necessary to mitigate any unintended consequences.

The Economic Data Report (EDR), containing cost, revenue, ownership, and employment data, will be collected annually from the harvesting and processing sectors. The data would be used to study the economic impacts of the Program on harvesters, processors and communities.

Participation in the data collection program is mandatory for all participants in these fisheries.

Currently, PSMFC is collecting EDRs for the BSAI Crab Fishery ,the Amendment 80 fleet, the GOA Trawl fleet and the Chinook Salmon EDR for the pollock fleet. Geana Tyler
