Request Data

In addition to observer data reports, the observer program also occasionally releases aggregated data in response to specific data requests. Data is aggregated to protect private commercial fishing interests and business practices as per data confidentiality mandates. These aggregations of data are used in numerous public analyses, reports and scientific documents. Requests for data can be submitted to the observer program by completing and submitting a data request form.
