Abstract or Summary
  • In 1987, U.S. Department of the Interior's Minerals Management Service (MMS) began a new proposed 5-Year Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Oil and Gas Leasing Program for mid-1987 through mid-1992. Proposed OCS Lease Sale 132 (off Oregon and Washington) was included in this 5-Year Program. Under the agreement, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) developed quantitative and qualitative databases describing the major fisheries occurring off Oregon. ODFW developed databases summarizing the Oregon groundfish trawl fishery (1980-1989), the Oregon shrimp trawl fishery (1980-198), the Oregon scallop fishery (1981-1985), the Washington shrimp trawl fishery (1985-1987), and the Oregon salmon troll fishery by port (1979-1988). ODFW also produced qualitative distributional maps of selected Oregon fisheries. . . Twenty nine quantitative fishery databases were produced for MMS using existing commercial trawl logbooks and delivery records. Qualitative maps of fishery distribution were developed based on interviews with fishers and fishery biologists... Significant Conclusions: The quantitative fishery information includes groundfish, shrimp, and scallop fishery databases. These provide a detailed geographic representation of the fisheries by month, gear, and species. The data can be summarized in their present fine-resolution format or be re-combined to characterize the fishery according to aggregated data groupings. Uses of the data include identifying fisheries that are most likely to be impacted by a proposed development, identifying potential area use conflicts, and quantifying specific fishery impacts by gear, time of year, block location, and species. The qualitative fishery maps provide general locations of fishing areas for several Oregon fisheries. Study Results: The groundfish, shrimp, and scallop fishery data files summarize catch in pounds and fishing effort in trawl hours within a 5 minute latitude by 5 minute longitude geographic grid system extending from Cape Mendocino, California to Cape Flattery, Washington. The databases provide a detailed geographic representation of the fisheries by month, gear, and species. The salmon database provides landings by port. The qualitative fishery maps summarize catch areas for the following fisheries: ocean salmon troll, dungeness crab, pot and longline groundfish, sea urchins, Pacific herring, squid, razor clam, and sport fishing charter boats. -- Technical Summary, p.[v-vi])
