How dispostion codes are designated for IFQ Halibut and Sablefish and IFQ Crab

When an IFQ report is generated in elandings and submitted to the NMFS IFQ Halibut & sablefish or the NMFS IFQ crab systems, the condition codes are marked as either "sold" or "retained".  Here is a list of how the disposition codes are translated into the IFQ system:

Halibut IFQ and CDQ & sablefish IFQ

Disposition codes designated as “sold”in the IFQ system

  • 41:  Sold for fish meal  (this is really theoretical since I don't think this is really going to happen in IFQ.  I see no code 41 in the data)
  • 60:  sold
  • 61:  Sold for bait
  • 62:  Overage

Disposition codes designated as “retained” in the IFQ system 

  • 87:  Retained for future sale
  • 88:   discarded, infested
  • 89:   decomposed or previously discarded
  • 92:   retained for bait, not sold
  • 95:   personal use; not sold
  • 99:   discard, onshore; not sold

Do not get submitted to the IFQ system and don’t come off IFQ

  • 63:   confiscated or seized
  • 64:   tagged IFQ fish
  • 79:   deadloss
  • 86:   donated
  • 93:   damaged by observer sampling
  • 98:  discard at sea

Crab

Disposition codes designated as “sold”in the IFQ system

  • 41:  Sold For Fishmeal (this is theoretically possible in the system, but crab is not turned into fish meal)
  • 60:  Sold
  • 61:  Sold for Bait (this is theoretically possible in the system, but crab is not sold as bait)
  • 62:  Overage

Disposition codes designated as “retained” in the IFQ system

  • 92:  Retained for Bait
  • 95:  Personal Use
  • 99:  Discard Onshore

Do not get submitted to the IFQ system and don’t come off IFQ

  • 63:   confiscated or seized
  • 79:   deadloss
  • 86:   donated
  • 88:   discarded, infested
  • 98:   discard at sea
