About the Data WarehousePublic Data WarehouseLogin Data Warehouse

The Data Warehouse is an online database populated with Atlantic coast fishery-dependent data supplied by the ACCSP's 23 program partners.The Warehouse harmonizes all of the data received into one set of codes for variables such as species, gear, and fishing area, making it possible to combine datasets from different sources for larger scale analyses.

The Public Data Warehouse does not require a username and password like the Login Data Warehouse.The information in the Public Data Warehouse is non-confidential data. Queries that you may use within the Public Data Warehouse may not be saved. However, you can export or download the data.

The Login Data Warehouse requires a username and password. To access this Login Data Warehouse, you must apply for a non-confidential or confidential account through ACCSP. The information in the Login Data Warehouse is non-confidential and confidential data, depending on your level of access. The benefit to a login for the Data Warehouse is that, once you have an account, you have the ability to save workbooks and queries and can return to them time and time again.

Commercial Landings and Commercial Catch and Effort (Trip Reports)

Commercial landings data represent the best compilation of state and federal landings submitted by both dealers and fishermen. Total pounds and dollar value are complete, but some effort information (area/gear) may be lacking.

If you downloaded information prior to the latest refresh date on the above chart you will want to run the query again for all new updates.

Commercial Catch and Effort (trip reports) are fisherman reports, or logbooks that typically have good effort data (area/gear) but in most cases do not represent 100% of the fishing activity (pounds landed).

This chart illustrates how data are collected at the partner level and the level of detail at which those data are submitted to the Program. For example, 'Trip reports (presented as monthly summaries)' means that data were collected by partners at the trip-level and submitted as monthly summaries to NOAA Fisheries or ACCSP. The Program began receiving all data directly from partners in 2007.

Recreational Data

ACCSP has recreational catch and effort data starting in 1981 available via the Data Warehouse. The most recent data includes wave 1 for 2017. The data since 2004 have been updated in conjunction with the new Marine Recreational Information Program estimation methodology released in February 2012. This includes both the public estimates and the advanced queries for bag limit analysis and directed trips.

Biological Data

ACCSP has Biological sampling data for American lobster (1981-2016) and Atlantic herring (2002 - 2016) available via custom data request.
