several BSAI non-pollock trawl groundfish fisheries among fishing 
sectors, and facilitates the formation of harvesting cooperatives among 
vessels in the Non-American Fisheries Act (non-AFA) Trawl Catcher/
Processor Cooperative Program. This program established a limited 
access privilege program for the non-AFA trawl catcher/processor 
sector.
    Data collected through the EDR includes labor information, revenues

of Amendment 80 on vessels or entities regulated by the non-AFA Trawl
