Foreign Tables

Here is a list of the tables associated with observer samples taken aboard vessels from foreign nations fishing or processing groundfish catch in the Bering Sea, Aleutian Islands, or the Gulf of Alaska, 1973-1990. Each table name links to a page which provides details about the table and about each column associated with the table.

With the revision of the Magnuson-Stevens Act, the data contained within these tables are confidential and are protected from general release. The staff authorized to use these data include NOAA Fisheries' scientists and managers participating in a broad range of activities including:

  • stock assessments,
  • marine mammal interactions,
  • food habits,
  • fish age analyses,
  • economic analyses,
  • fishery management plan development,
  • in-season fishery management.

The data are also shared with other authorized users in the Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) and North Pacific Fishery Management Council staff with similar responsibilities.

Foreign Fishing Table Diagram is a pdf file which shows how these tables connect to each other and Foreign Table And Column Comments is a 23 page pdf file providing details about each of the tables.

Additionally, there are three tables that provide the official total catch, one (norpac.foreign_blend) for groundfish and two (norpac.foreign_prohib7886 and norpac.foreign_prohib8790) for prohibited species. Data from these three tables are not confidential.
