American Samoa Longline Logbook

Metadata Updated: November 10, 2023

This data system contains the logbook data of vessels unloading in American Samoa. In 1992, the logbooks of three longline trips conducting an experiment to test the vertical longlining concept were submitted. With the implementation of the federal longline logbook program in 1996, logbook submissions resumed. The fishing occurs in the southern central Pacific (90 deg W - 170 deg E, 0 deg S - 45 deg S). Data on interactions with protected species are also collected.

Lineage Data was recorded at sea by permitted fishermen on Federal logbooks, and data entry was conducted at PIFSC to create ASCII fixed record length flat files. The flat files were loaded into a database, and the LLPS data validation program was run on the data. Clean data was extracted from the database and then loaded into an Oracle database flat table for authorized access.
