¹Landings in live pounds (whole animal, shell on)

²Value in 2014 dollars

3Atlantic HMS species only includes data from 2006-2014 and is only from vessels using pelagic longline gear. Does not include landings from other gear types or Party/Charter trips.

*NOTE These data only pertain to federal vessel activity for vessels fishing under GARFO and HMS permits. These records do NOT comprehensively capture federal lobster, NOAA Fisheries Southeast Regional Office (SERO), or unregulated fisheries that are not required to report. Atlantic HMS Logbooks were used to capture HMS (tunas, sharks, swordfish, etc.) landing from pelagic longline vessels.

**Due to confidentiality requirements certain species were aggregated into an OTHER FISH/SHELLFISH, OTHER GROUNDFISH, OTHER WHITING, and OTHER HMS groupings. Note that some species records in the OTHER HMS and OTHER FISH/SHELLFISH lack value estimates, however the impact on aggregate value is relatively small.

*** Not all landings include Party/Charter trips. HMS data only includes landings/value information from pelagic longline vessels.
