Abstract
  • Much information biologists need to do their job comes from fishermen's logbooks. These logbook data are confidential by law. No single log record, or single skipper's log information can be made available to anyone else. What use is made of these log records, and why are they useful is a question often asked by fishermen. This report tries to answer those questions. Some uses are: 1. Logbook information is the only source of where, when, and how much (per tow or area) fish are caught. 2. A vitally important statistic, effort (hours towed), is only obtainable from logs. 3. For foreign fishery bilateral negotiations, logbooks are the only documented source of what areas and time periods are important to U.S. fishermen. 4. Tagging-migration studies depend in part on logbook data. 5. A fisherman may benefit from the logbook program directly. If he loses or misplaces his logbook, copies are obtainable from O.D.F.W. files.
