Hawaii DAR Dealer Reporting System Data
Data Set  |  PIFSC

In 2000 January, the Hawaii Division of Aquatic Resources (DAR) implemented a computerized data processing system for fish dealer data collected state-wide. Hawaii law requires that all fish dealers must provide a report to DAR for all purchases made directly from fishers. The term "fish dealers" includes fish auctions, fish markets, stores, restaurants, or any business buying fish directly from f...

Guam Shore-based Creel Survey
Data Set  |  PIFSC

Similar in basic design to other shore-based creel surveys in the region, the Guam survey has been ongoing since the early 1980s and is continuing today. Creel surveys have 2 major sub-surveys; one to estimate participation (fishing effort), and one to provide catch-rate (CPUE), species composition data, and size of fishes. One unique feature about this survey is that it has an aerial survey comp...

Guam Commercial Purchases
Data Set  |  PIFSC

DAWR collects Trip Ticket or purchase invoice data from vendors that buy fish directly from the fishermen. Similar to the trip ticket system in Saipan, this is a voluntary program and has very few participating vendors. This was created by WPacFIN in the early 1980s. Data from as far back as July 1979 were recovered and entered into the data system as well. DAWR-based staff does the main data pro...

Guam Boat-based Creel Survey
Data Set  |  PIFSC

Similar to other boat-based survey in basic design, this system is run by the Div. of Aquatic and Wildlife Resources (DAWR) and has been in operation since about 1982 (actually before that, but not in a standard structure and we haven't rescued those earlier data) and continues as a major fisheries monitoring tool by DAWR. Creel surveys consist of 2 major sub-surveys, one to identify the level of...

Guam BSP Longline Transshipment
Data Set  |  PIFSC

Foreign longline vessels have transshipped fish through Guam to Asia since the late 1980s. This database captures at a near census level all activities of transshipment, including species ID and landed weight of each individual fish, whether transshipped or rejected, plus the name and country of origin of the vessels and approximate area of fishing. The data are collected and recorded by transsh...

CNMI Shore-based Creel Survey
Data Set  |  PIFSC

The Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI), Division of Fish and Wildlife (DFW) staff conducted shore-based creel surveys which have 2 major sub-surveys; one to estimate participation (fishing effort), and one to provide catch-rate (CPUE), species composition data, and size of fishes. As is the case for all of these shore-based surveys, shore-based means fishing without a powered boat...

CNMI Commercial Purchases
Data Set  |  PIFSC

The Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI), Division of Fish and Wildlife (DFW) collects 'Trip Ticket' or purchase invoice data from vendors that buy fish directly from the fishermen. This system is similar to other trip ticket invoice systems, except that compliance is voluntary and invoices are only provided to dealers, hotel, stores, fish mobiles etc. on the island of Saipan. Particip...

CNMI Boat-based Creel Survey
Data Set  |  PIFSC

The Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) Creel surveys are operated by the Division of Fish and Wildlife (DFW) and are only on the island of Saipan. Creel surveys consist of 2 major sub-surveys, one to identify the level of fishing participation for each fishing method used in the Territory, and one to determine the catch rate, species composition, and sizes of fish (and invertebrat...

American Samoa Commercial Purchases
Data Set  |  PIFSC

In 1990 the local government made it mandatory for local vendors to participate in this monitoring program and it is continuing. The Department of Marine and Wildlife Resources (DMWR) issues numbered books of Fish and Shellfish Receipt forms to all wholesale buyers of fish who resell fish to the retail market, either whole or prepared. This receipt has evolved over time to include fish sales impo...

American Samoa Shore-based Creel Survey
Data Set  |  PIFSC

The DMWR staff has also conducted shore-based creel surveys which also have 2 major sub-surveys; one to estimate participation (fishing effort), and one to provide catch-rate, species composition, and size frequency data. The amount of area covered by the surveys has varied over the years from just a central part of Tutuila to 3 separate routes on Tutuila plus sampling on the Manu'a Islands of Of...

American Samoa Cannery Offloading
Data Set  |  PIFSC

From 1995 through 2010, the two canneries in American Samoa provided Cannery Offloading Reports to the Department of Marine and Wildlife Resources (DMWR) office. In 1998, WPacFIN assisted DMWR in developing a data entry system to capture and compile these data, which were entered and processed at the DMWR office. These data consist of the vessel names, dates of offloading, and weights of the major...

American Samoa Cannery (Length-Frequency) Sampling
Data Set  |  PIFSC

From 2001-2013, in coordination with Pacific Islands Regional Office's (PIRO) Tuna Treaty Monitoring Program, the Size Frequency Sampling Program at the cannery collected length-frequency data from American Samoa-based longliners, in addition to the purse seiners offloading at the cannery (which was the primary target of this PIRO program).  Only the length-frequency data for the top 5-10 longline...
