"Holdings of Limited Entry Permits, Sablefish Quota Shares, and Halibut Quota Shares Through 1997 and Data on Fishery Gross Earnings." A series of reports prepared by the Commercial Fisheries Entry Commission for the Restricted Access Management Program of the National Marine Fisheries Service - Alaska Region. August 1998. Abstract: These reports are a series produced on Gulf of Alaska coastal communities. They were prepared with funding provided by the Restricted Access Management Program (NMFS-RAM) of the National Marine Fisheries Service - Alaska Region. The reports cover the holdings of restricted use-privileges by persons from various Gulf of Alaska coastal communities and urban areas. The reports provide fishery-specific data on holdings of Alaska limited entry permits for persons from the communities. There are tables that show the number of limited entry permits initially issued to persons from the communities, and the number of these permits held at year-end 1997. Time series data on limited entry permit holdings are also provided. Similarly, the report contains data on halibut and sablefish quota shares initially allocated to persons from the communities as well as quota shares held at year-end 1997. Quota shares are the basic use-privileges issued under the halibut and sablefish individual quota (IFQ) programs. Time series data on quota share holdings are also provided. Finally, the report contains time series data on the fishery gross earnings of Commercial Fisheries Entry Commission (CFEC) limited entry and interim-use permit holders from the communities, orgainized by permit fishery. The report also contains 1995-1997 time series data on gross earnings in the halibut and sablefish IFQ fisheries for quota share holders from the communities.
