The final 2024 black sea bass specifications were updated through a final action effective on 1/1/2024 (88 FR 88266).

The total cumulative landings include landings by non-GARFO permitted vessels from south of Cape Hatteras Light, North Carolina, which is outside the Greater Atlantic Region management unit for black sea bass.

Negative landings can be the result of updates to the database (e.g. reported Research Set-Aside landings are subtracted from the Commercial Current Week’s Landings or Previous Weeks’ Updates). As a result, the Commercial Current Week’s Landings or Previous Weeks’ Updates can be negative.

These data are the best available to NOAA Fisheries Service when this report was compiled. Data are provided by vessels via VMS and VTR reporting, and supplied to NOAA Fisheries Service by dealers via Dealer Electronic Reporting to the Atlantic Coastal Cooperative Statistics Program (ACCSP) and/or by state agencies and may be preliminary. Discrepancies with data from previous Weekly Landings Reports are due to corrections made to the database.
