UFA Auction Sampling Data

Metadata Updated: November 10, 2023

Between 1984 January - 2002 June, personnel from NMFS/PIFSC/FRMD/FMB/FMAP and Hawaii Department of Aquatic Resources (DAR) conducted port sampling at the United Fishing Agency (UFA) Fish Auction. They recorded the total landing at the UFA Fish Auction, with a frequency of six times a week during the earlier years to twice a week during the later years.

In 2000 January, DAR implemented a Dealer Data collection procedure that receives reports from the fish dealers that are more complete and covers more than just the auction. This Dealer Data takes the place of the UFA Sampling Data, and after a 2.5 year overlap, the collection of the UFA Sampling Data was discontinued in 2002 June. The DAR Dealer Data is archived and documented separately.
