Processed Products Data Restrictions

Some caveats with the Processed Products data:

Every year NOAA Fisheries conducts a survey of seafood processors across the United States gathering information on product quantity and value as well as plant employment. This data collection spans all regions within NOAA Fisheries and generates important information for use in publications and management decisions. The Annual Survey of Seafood Processors is one of the only data collection efforts that includes all companies, regardless of plant size, and includes quantity and value information at the species level (when possible).

The data collection is a collaborative effort between headquarters and the NOAA Fisheries Regions. Regional port agents distribute the survey to the processors in their area and stay in contact throughout the process to assist in filling out the form and answer any questions. Regional port agents play a vital role in keeping the survey current and reach out to local processors to improve return rates. The completed surveys are forwarded to NOAA Fisheries Headquarters, where Office of Science and Technology Fisheries Statistics Division staff enter all data, follow up with processors and port agents, tabulate annual figures and maintain historical databases.
