Southwest Alaska Vessel Survey
The Southwest (SW) Alaska Vessel survey is a mail survey designed to gather information that characterizes the economic contribution of commercial fisheries to Southwest (SW) Alaska and other U.S. regions. Vessels were selected at random from those that landed fish at SW Alaska ports during 2014. The vessels were classified based on the type of fishery that accounted for the majority of SW Alaska ex-vessel revenues in 2014. There are three main sections to be filled out in this survey: (1) contact and registration information for your vessel, (2) vessel labor information, and (3) vessel operating expenses.
