cThe Alaska Region does not manage by trips or days at sea, therefore these metrics are not reported, with the exception of halibut, sablefish and crab.
dThe Alaska Region reports a season length index based upon the proportion of days when fishing occurs compared to the number of days when fishing is allowed.
eAll revenue and cost recovery data have been adjusted by the GDP deflator for 2013
fSince the region does not manage trips (and therefore cannot be defined), revenue from non-catch share species on catch share trips cannot be calculated.
gCost recovery fees are based upon the prior year's ex-vessel revenue and program administration costs. Accordingly, there is year-to-year variation in the amount of cost recovery fees collected.
