eLandings Groundfish Reporting

Detailed eLandings System Reporting Sequence

Steps for completing a landing report in eLandings:

  1. Prior to the beginning of a vessel off-load, the processor must make sure that the vessel operator or sellers are properly licensed:
    1. Valid CFEC permit(s) for the year and for the fishery
    2. Valid permit(s) for IFQ halibut, sablefish or rationalized crab, if they apply to the landing.
  2. Using the Internet, go to elandings.alaska.gov . Log onto the eLandings system. Select the appropriate report
  3. Add Vessel, Permit, and Location Information. This corresponds to the 'header' information on the conventional paper fish ticket.
    1. This information can be supplied as the off-load is beginning. Enter all information in blank cells. Check the autofilled cells to determine that they are accurate for the landing that is taking place.
    2. Complete the CFEC worksheet. Data enter all CFEC permits that pertain to the landing taking place. The eLandings System is designed to allow the recording of multiple CFEC permits - for several individuals or for the same individual.
    3. Complete the IFQ worksheet, if the landing includes IFQ species.
    4. Complete the Stat Area worksheet, if the harvest was proportional to all areas.
    5. Save. At this stage your report is an Unsubmitted Report. Review the information submitted for accuracy. Note the landing report number. The eLandings System stores the report. You can recall this saved, unsubmitted report at the conclusion of the off-load.
  4. Go to the Add/Edit Itemized Catch section.
    1. Data enter the itemized catch by species, delivery condition, disposition categories.
    2. Record if ice/slime is present (sablefish or halibut only).
    3. Record any overages and comments.
    4. Save and review information for accuracy.
  5. Allocate catch to CFEC permits.  You will need to do this step if more than one CFEC permit is recorded for the landing and you did not specify the fish tickets on the itemized catch lines. Review allocated catch for accuracy.
  6. Submit initial report.
  7. Generate IFQ reports (if applicable).
    1. Review for accuracy
    2. Submit IFQ report.  You must submit the report within 6 hours of the landing.
    3. Print IFQ report PDF files. Obtain signatures.
  8. Select Add/Edit Grading and Pricing. (Note: Grading/pricing is not required for the initial submission of the landing report. This information can be entered after the initial submission of the report.)
    1. Data enter grading/sizing/pricing for purchased product, as appropriate.
    2. Save and review information for accuracy.
  9. Print fish ticket(s). Select link to fish ticket(s) PDF file and print appropriate copies. Obtain signatures.
  10. Submit Final Report.
