  • From this location you can create a new salmon troll landing report.
  • Individual users can be associated with one or more Operations
    • For example, a business manager might be associated with three Operations - Big Fish Inc, WAI Processing, and the stationary floating processor, The Happy Lady. Each of these operations is unique, and the user is an authorized for each operation. 
    • When the user logs into the eLandings system, he/she must designate the Operation that will be used to record landing information. 
      • While most users are associated with only one Operation, if your business buys and processes, and/or performs custom processing for another Operation, there will be more than one listed under your User Account. 
    • Once the Operation has been chosen, you can click on the Landing Report button to open the form. Here, our operation has seven operations associated with it.
    • Select the KING FISH PROCESSING operation.

Once you've selected the KING FISH PROCESSING plant select the Troll Landing Report button.

Salmon with Halibut Bycatch

If the landing includes halibut, Use the Troll Landing Report for all salmon and groundfish and the Groundfish Landing Report for halibut

Salmon Troll Landing Report, Vessel, Permit, and Location Information

The landing report is divided into several web pages that you will move through in sequential order:

  1. Vessel, Permit, and Location Information
  2. Itemized Catch 
  3. Grading & Pricing

This will bring up the new landing report page.

This is the first screen that is displayed when creating a new landing report. Note that some of the required information about your operation is auto-filled based on your processor user account.

  • The eLandings System auto-fills your Port of Landing, and ADF&G Processor Code.
  • You should note that a unique Landing Report number is generated each time you initiate a landing report. In the above picture it is Landing Report number 359518. 

    When you established your User Account and Operation, you entered all of the federal and state permits associated with your operation.

Notice that the Landing Report Number is located at the top of the new report. Here the number is 359518. The Landing Report Number is a unique number generated by the eLandings System to identify the report. If you need to go and edit a report, the Landing Report number is what you will use to locate the report. 

tLandings Only Section

If you are editing a ticket that has been created using tLandings or entering a paper fish ticket you will need to fill in or ensure the validity of the following fields:

  • Time of Landing: The time fish or shellfish are off-loaded or trans-shipped from the catcher vessel to the first purchaser. The time of landing is the day off-load is completed. For catcher-processors the time landed is the time the product is caught and brought on board. For catcher-seller vessels the land date time is the time the product is initially brought into port. 
  • Tender ADF&G vessel number: The ADF&G vessel number assigned to an acting tender vessel. A tender is a vessel that is attendant to other vessels and is used to transport or ferry unprocessed fish or shellfish received from another vessel to a shoreside processor or mothership.  Tender vessels operate, in most circumstances, as an agent for a specific processor and take deliveries from harvesting vessels.
  • Tender Batch: Is the batch number assigned by the processor user when uploading a batch of tickets from tLandings/PTI to eLandings.
  • Tally Invoice: Tally sheet is provided in tLandings and provides a summary of all items recorded in a landing.

We are not editing a tLandings ticket so we will leave these fields blank.

CFEC & IFQ Permit Worksheets

  • A CFEC permit is required for all vessel operators and they must be appropriate for their applicable fishery
  • Place the cursor in the CFEC Fishery field and swipe the troll permit card. If a magnetic stripe reader is not used, an imprint of the CFEC permit card is required after the fish ticket is printed.
  • To swipe a permit card, with the CFEC Fishery box active, swipe the permit card. Text will appear in the box that looks like: %BS15B 00129Q^TOM TROLLER ^1801LBARRACUDA ?;00129180100003814326?

Once you hit the save button the permit information will populate into the landing report. 

If you do not have a training permit card, enter the following information.

Statistical Area Worksheet

Referred to as the Stat Area Worksheet, this is the area of the Vessel, Permit, and Location Information of the landing report to record the five-digit salmon ADF&G statistical area denoting the actual area of catch.

Report the five-digit salmon statistical area(s) and percentage for salmon harvest in the Stat Area Worksheet. Note that the percent must add up to 100 percent. You can add more stat area lines by clicking on the More Stat Areas button.


  • This worksheet may be used to document a single statistical area, with 100%, or multiple statistical areas. 
    • The recording of multiple statistical areas in the worksheet requires that the species that are caught and discarded are equally distributed across all statistical areas fished; and all statistical areas fished are open to the species fished.
  • If the criteria are met, enter all of the statistical areas that were fished in the field labeled Stat Area and enter the percentage of the catch taken in the area in the area labeled Percent. 
  • If all of the species recorded on the ticket were from a single statistical area, enter the Stat Area and 100%.
  • If you use the Stat Area Worksheet, there is no need to enter the statistical area code and percent anywhere else on the landing report.
  • If one or more species are not harvested in a manner that is equally distributed across all statistical areas fished, the catch must be recorded in the Add/Edit Itemized Catch section of the eLandings landing report.

Enter the following data;

Stat AreaPercent

Once you've completed these sections, click on the Save button. The data that you submit to the repository database is validated for accuracy. The program will return a message indicating whether the save was successful or if corrective action must take place.

If it successfully saved you will get an information message at the top of the page that the report saved successfully.

Incomplete Reports

Once you've saved you now have an incomplete, not submitted report. 

The eLandings System allows you to enter the 'header' information, also known as the Vessel, Permit, and Location Information section of the landing report.

  • The 'header' information can be saved as an unsubmitted report. 
  • After the vessel off-load is complete and the tally sheet completed, the itemized catch and price information can be recorded and saved. 
  • This activity creates an Initial Report that must be submitted.
  • You can

Itemized Catch

Scroll down the page and click on the Add/Edit Itemized Catch Button

This will bring you to the Salmon Itemized Catch Screen.

Report each salmon species in the itemized catch section by species, condition, number, lbs., and disposition. If the stat area of catch for a particular species differs from that detailed in the Stat Area Worksheet, report that individual stat area with that species in the itemized catch section.  All personal use harvest of salmon or steelhead must be reported on a fish ticket at the time of landing by condition, number of fish and disposition (95).

Remember: If you used the Stat Area Worksheet you do not need to complete the Stat Area for the salmon line items unless it is groundfish bycatch. If it is groundfish bycatch, you will need to enter the 6 digit groundfish stat area. For salmon, leave Stat Area blank and just  fill , Species, Condition, Number, Lbs., and Disposition

Select the fish ticket then enter the following then click the save button.

Stat AreaSpeciesConditionNumber Lbs. Disposition

Report all groundfish harvest in the itemized catch section by six-digit groundfish statistical area, species, condition, lbs. and disposition. All personal use harvest of groundfish must be reported on a fish ticket at the time of landing by condition, lbs. of fish and disposition (95). Processors do not need to document the number of fish when reporting groundfish; groundfish harvest reporting requirements are restricted to pounds. DO NOT enter halibut in the Troll Landing Report.

Grading and Pricing

Once you save, it will bring you back to the Salmon Report Display page. If you will not be adding grading and pricing you can Submit Initial Report by clicking on the Submit Initial Report button.

If you want to add grading and pricing click on the Add/Edit Grading and Pricing button. 

  • If you have determined the price of the itemized catch at the conclusion of the off-load, and have completed grading/sizing, you can complete this portion of the report.
    • If you do not have this information completed, or it will occur at a later point in time, proceed with the initial submission of the landing report.

I want to add grading and pricing so I click on the Add/Edit Grading and Pricing button. This will bring me to the Salmon Troll Grading and Pricing page where I will enter in my grading and pricing for each line item. Additional grade/size and price categories are available by selecting, More Lines.
