The NOAA Fisheries, Fisheries Statistics Division has automated data summary programs that anyone can use to rapidly and easily summarize U.S. commercial fisheries landings.
Annual Commercial Landings by Group
This query will summarize the pounds, dollar value and price per pound of commercial fishery landings for a single state or the U.S., by year and species, it will group these landings into "finfish" and "shellfish" categories, and will give you the subtotal of the pounds and dollar value of landings for each category. To run this query select (click on) a state, select the year(s) for which data are to be summarized,and then click on the SUBMIT button.
The program will summarize and report all landings by individual species; confidential landings of individual species are combined whenever they occur and are reported as unclassified finfish or shellfish.
A word of caution: landings for the most recent year are preliminary and sometimes highly incomplete. You can summarize data from 1950 to the current year minus one.
