"Holdings of Limited Entry Permits, Sablefish Quota Shares, and Halibut Quota Shares Through 1998 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 1999. Abstract: These reports are a series produced on Gulf of Alaska coastal communities. The reports cover the holdings of restricted use-privileges by persons from various Gulf of Alaska coastal communities and urban areas. The 1999 reports are the second edition of the report series. They were prepared with funding provided by the Restricted Access Management Program (NMFS-RAM) of the National Marine Fisheries Service - Alaska Region. The reports provide fishery-specific data on holdings of Alaska Commercial Fisheries Entry Commission (CFEC) limited entry permits for persons from selected Gulf of Alaska coastal communities. The number of limited entry permits initially issued to persons from the communities, and the number of those permits held at year-end 1998 are provided. Time series data on limited entry permit holdings are also presented. Similarly, the reports contain data on halibut and sablefish quota shares initially allocated to persons from the communities as well as quota shares held at year-end 1998. 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. In addition to permit and quota share holdings, the reports provide time series data on the fishery gross earnings of CFEC limited entry and interim-use permit holders from the communities, reported by permit fishery. The reports also contain 1995-1998 time series data on gross earnings in the halibut and sablefish IFQ fisheries for quota share holders from the Gulf of Alaska communities.
