SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The workshop will include a discussion of 2011 recordkeeping and reporting requirements for Alaska groundfish fisheries and Individual Fishing Quota fisheries, and instructions for completing and submitting required reports and logbooks using seaLandings.

NMFS will provide a demonstration of the new version of seaLandings for at-sea catcher/processors and motherships, and training on how to submit daily production reports, and landing reports with and without Individual Fishing Quota.

Beginning in 2011, new regulations implementing Amendment 91 to the Fishery Management Plan for groundfish of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Area require American Fisheries Act catcher/processors and any catcher/processor harvesting Community Development Quota pollock to use a NMFS approved electronic logbook in lieu of using the NMFS catcher/processor trawl gear Daily Fishing Logbook. At this workshop, NMFS will provide a demonstration of the trawl catcher/processor electronic logbook in seaLandings.
