The eLandings System Reporting Sequence

Prior to the beginning of a vessel off-load
1. The processor needs to obtain the following licenses/permits from the vessel operator:

  • Valid CFEC permit(s) for the year and fishery,
  • IFQ permit(s) for IFQ/CDQ halibut, sablefish or rationalized crab (as applicable).

Check IFQ Balances

NOTE: If it is an IFQ landing, permit holders should check their IFQ permit balance to ensure they have adequate pounds available on their permit. This can only be done by going here: https://alaskafisheries.noaa.gov/webapps/efish/login

2. Once you have access to the internet, go to https://elandings.alaska.gov/

  • Click on the Login link and enter your User ID and Password

  • Select Groundfish Landing Report or Crab Landing Report.

3. You will be taken to the Vessel, Permit, and Location Information screen - also referred to as the Header section which corresponds to the 'header' information found on the conventional paper fish ticket.

  • This information can be supplied at the beginning of the offload to initiate the landing report, or at the end of the offload.
  • Enter information about the delivering vessel in the upper portion of the page. Do not modify the pre-filled values.

  • Enter the appropriate CFEC information, select the management program, and enter the applicable NMFS ID and IFQ permit numbers.
    • A mag-stripe reader can be used to 'swipe' in the CFEC permit data which removes the requirement to imprint the CFEC permit on the fish ticket.

  • Enter statistical areas in the stat area worksheet if the harvest was proportional to all areas.
