Additional Information

Landings Data Restrictions

Some caveats with the landings data:

The dollar value of landings are reported as nominal (current at the time of reporting) values. Users can use the Consumer Price Index (CPI) or the Producer Price Index (PPI) to convert these nominal landing values into real (deflated) values.

All annual and monthly landing summaries will return only non- confidential landing statistics. Most summarized landings are non- confidential, but whenever confidential landings occur, they have been combined with other landings and usually reported with "unc" for unclassified (i.e., "finfishes, unc" or "shellfishes, unc"). Total landings by state include confidential data and will be accurate, but landings reported by individual species may, in some instances, be misleading due to data confidentiality.
