Information obtained through the EDR would be accessible by the independent Data Collection Agent (DCA) under cooperative agreement with NMFS, Alaska Region, to distribute forms, receive forms, review, and verify information in the crab economic surveys (see SYSTEM LOCATION). Each vessel owner or lessee and each plant owner or lessee that participated in the specified crab fisheries since 1996 will be required to submit a EDR to the DCA by mail, FAX, or electronic file.
