The data set contains receipts of tuna destined for canning, from both domestic and imported sources, at cannery locations within the 50 states, Puerto Rico, and American Samoa. Monthly data are available electronically from 1979 to present with new data currently uploaded annually (this may change to quarterly or monthly uploads sometime in 2020). Data elements include species, product condition, flag of catcher vessel, ocean area of harvest, harvesting gear type, harvesting vessel trip dates, unloading dates, carrier vessel name, location, cannery location, fishing vessel registration number, weights and dolphin-safe status. Non-summarized proprietary data are considered business confidential.
