Series:PIFSC data report DR-05-001
Description:"All Federal longline logbook data for trips completed in the first quarter of 2005 by Hawaii-based longline vessels have been received and processed and are summarized in this report. Although most of the data from trips which began late in the first quarter of 2005 and continued into the second quarter are included, this report should be considered preliminary. Since April 2, 2004 the Hawaii-based longline fishery has operated under new rules which eliminated the southern area closure and reopened the swordfish-directed component; however, the fishery remained restricted on effort, hook, and bait types. A separate limit onsea turtle interactions is in effect for the swordfish fishery and other mitigation measures, such as de-hooking devices, are also required for the tuna and swordfish fisheries"--Page .
