  • 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 PROCESS-KING COVE operation.

Once you've selected theKING FISH PROCESS-KING COVE plant select the Salmon Landing Report button.

Salmon 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 below picture it is Landing Report number 359530

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

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. Since we are not editing a ticket that was created in tLandings rather, creating the ticket in eLandings we do not need to fill out any of these fields.

Time of LandingEnter the timeThe 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 Number leave blankThe 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.

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 thefive-digit salmon statistical area(s)andpercentagefor salmon harvest in theStat 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 Areasbutton.


  • 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 Area

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.

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
