Method of Collection This request is for an extension of a current information collection. eLandings and seaLandings are data entry components of the Alaska Interagency Electronic Reporting System (IERS) which is a collaborative program run by National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Alaska Regional Office, Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G), and the International Pacific Halibut Commission (IPHC). eLandings and seaLandings provide the Alaska fishing industry with a consolidated electronic means of reporting production and landings of commercial fish and shellfish to multiple management agencies with a single reporting system. NMFS collects groundfish harvest and production data for Fishery Management Plan species in the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). ADF&G collects harvest data for groundfish species taken in the State of Alaska waters, and has responsibility for some fisheries in the EEZ, such as lingcod and black rockfish. ADF&G and NMFS cooperatively manage the Crab Rationalization Program (CR) fisheries in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area. NMFS and IPHC cooperatively manage Individual Fishing Quota (IFQ) for Pacific halibut and sablefish in both State waters and in the EEZ. Using the eLandings Web-based application, shoreside processors report groundfish, crab, Pacific halibut, and sablefish production and landings data (http://www.elandings.alaska.gov). Processors with no Web access, such as the at-sea fleet, use eLandings client desktop software named seaLandings, provided by NMFS, and submit landing reports as email attachments. Once data are entered and submitted, the User daily must print onsite through eLandings each landing report, production report, and if an IFQ delivery, each IFQ receipt. The parties to the information must acknowledge the accuracy of the printed reports by signing them and entering date signed. In addition, the User must make the printed copies available upon request of NMFS observers and authorized officers. Some of the benefits of IERS include: improved data quality, automated processing of data, improved process for correcting or updating information, availability of more timely data for fishery managers, and reduction of duplicative reporting of similar information to multiple agencies. Methods of submittal include online and email. Clients with no Web access, such as the at-sea fleet, use seaLandings client desktop software and submit landing reports as email attachments. The vessels use satellite communications which may or may not include telephone, Internet, text messaging, email, and email attachment capabilities.
