The eLandings System Reporting Sequence

1. Using the Internet, go to elandings.alaska.gov and log in to the system.

If you already have registered and have a username and password, click on the Login option. 

Now enter your UserID and password, then click “Login”

2. Select the appropriate operation and report.

Once you have successfully logged on, you will need to make sure your operation default is correct. You can use the dropdown to switch between operations if you are a user for multiple operations. 

Use the menu options to create a report. You will have multiple options on the type of report you want to create. In this example, we are going to create a groundfish landing report for IFQ halibut. 

3. Complete the 'header' section.

The eLandings system will generate a new report - The first step is to enter the Vessel, Permit, and Location Information. This corresponds to the 'header' information on the conventional paper fish ticket. This information should be supplied as the off-load occurs.

Enter pertinent information in blank cells and check the auto-filled cells to make sure the information is accurate.

3a. Complete the CFEC Permit worksheet

Now, enter CFEC permit data that pertains to the landing. The eLandings System allows you to record multiple CFEC permits in one landing report. If you have a magnetized CFEC card and a mag-stripe reader, you can swipe the card which will auto-fill the CFEC permit numbers.
Complete the IFQ Permit worksheet if the landing includes IFQ species. This is where you can use the max-out pounds feature but you must have more than one IFQ permit in the same IPHC area for it to work.

3b. Complete the Stat Area worksheet

If the harvest was proportional to all areas enter stat areas here. Now click on Save. (Alternatively, you will be able to enter non-proportional stat area information on the itemized catch screen.)

At this point, you have saved your new landing report. A new screen should pop up with the header information saved. Review Vessel, Permit, Location information for accuracy, and take note of the landing report number.
If you cannot complete your report for any reason, you can easily reopen this report at a later time if you know the landing report number.

4. Add the itemized catch. 

Scroll down past the header section and click on "Add Edit Itemized Catch"

A new screen will open. This is where you add all the itemized catch for this landing. You can enter specific stat areas here, and any stat areas entered on the itemized catch will override the stat area worksheet. You can also assign fish tickets here if you wish to do it manually. Otherwise, they can be assigned automatically in the next step.

Once all the itemized catch is entered, click on the "Save" to continue. 

5. Allocate catch.

Once your catch has been added and saved, you will be returned to the main report page.

If more than one CFEC permit is recorded for the landing the catch needs to be allocated to the CFEC permits accordingly. eLandings will assign catch to the fish tickets electronically when you click on the “Allocate Permits” button.

Review allocations for accuracy.

6. Submit Initial Report.

Header information, and catch information have been entered and saved, and allocations to proper permits and tickets have been made. Now you need to submit the initial report.

To submit your initial report, simply click on the “Submit Initial Report” button. Once your initial report is submitted, you cannot undo submission.  

7. Generate IFQ reports (if applicable).

Now that your initial report is submitted, you can generate your IFQ report if your landing includes IFQ. If you are not landing IFQ, proceed to Step 9. Add grading and pricing.

To generate your IFQ Report, scroll down to the IFQ report and click on the “Generate IFQ Reports” button.

If you have any ambitious stat areas, you should assign them at this step, before moving on to submitting your IFQ reports.

8. Submit your IFQ Report

Once you have generated your IFQ Report, review it before submitting your IFQ report to make sure everything was correctly allocated. Then submit your IFQ report by clicking on the "Submit IFQ Report" button. 

9. Add Grading and Pricing

Now that your initial report and IFQ report have been submitted, it a good time to add grading and pricing, but you can add grading and pricing at any time once your itemized catch has been added to the report.

If you adjust your grading and pricing after your final report has been submitted, simply resubmit the final report to make the adjustments. 

To add or edit your grading and pricing, click on the "Add, Edit Grading and Pricing" button. 

From the window that opens, you can add and edit grading and pricing for the catch. If you have grading and pricing templates, those will populate for the species that are applicable to your saved templates. 

10. Submit the Final Report.

You can now submit your final report. To submit the final report, click on the "Submit Final Report"

11. Print fish ticket and Landing Receipts. 

To complete the landing process, don't forget to print out and sign all the needed paperwork. 

To print your Fish Ticket, click on the blue fish ticket number in the CFEC Permit Worksheet area. 

To print you landing receipts for IFQ, click on the blue links in the IFQ Reports section.
