The Fisheries Statistics Division of the NOAA Fisheries has automated data summary programs that anyone can use to rapidly and easily summarize U.S. commercial fisheries landings.
These programs allow you to query our commercial fishery data bases and summarize United States domestic commercial landings in several formats. Domestic fishery landings are those fish and shellfish that are landed and sold in the 50 states by U.S. fishermen and do not include landings made in U.S. territories or by foreign fishermen. You can summarize the pounds and dollar value of commercial landings by your choice of years, months, states and species for the years 1990 onwards. The volume and value of 1950 onwards landings can be summarized by: years, states and species; by years, states, species and fishing gears; or years, states, species, finfish or shellfish groups, and price per pound.
Please read the caveats associated with these data before using them in any research, report or commercial endeavor. If you have questions about the data or are aware of any errors, send us an e-mail or call 301-427-8103.
We will make other fishery landings, vessel, fishing gear and other information available to users as time permits.
