  • Description:
    "In the United States, some fisheries are managed under catch share programs, which is a fishery management tool that dedicates a secure share of quota allowing individual fishermen, fishing cooperatives, fishing communities, or other entities to harvest a specific amount of fish (Brinson and Thunberg, 2013). As of January 2015, there were 15 catch share programs in the United States (Table 1). This report provides data on indicators of fishery performance for 13 selected fisheries not managed on the basis of catch shares(Table 2), including trends over time. As such, the report is an extension and companion to NOAA Fisheries' report on economic performance of catch share programs (Brinson and Thunberg, 2013). The indicators of performance developed by NOAA Fisheries economists, anthropologists, policy analysts, and resource managers for catch share programs were adapted to non-catch share fisheries and reported in this report. Many of these indicators such as quota and landings, effort, and revenue are relevant indicators of fishery performance regardless of management approach. Fisheries included in this report were selected based on their social and/or economic significance in each region, and because they are distinct fisheries managed under a single Fishery Management Plan. The report first describes the process used to identify and develop the performance indicators, then details, the definition and measurement method for each indicator. Next, the performance indicators for each non-catch share fishery are reported, and trends through time are identified and discussed. Finally, non-catch share fishery performance is compared across programs for selected economic indicators"--Introduction.
