Please note: The first edition of this report was released on January 22, 2015. This second edition of the report is being issued to correct two identified concerns with the first edition. First, Table 27 reports (1) ex-vessel prices, (2) ACE lease prices, and (3) ratios of ACE lease prices to ex-vessel prices. In the first edition, ex-vessel prices were reported in dollars per landed pound, and ACE lease prices were reported in dollars per live pound, resulting in incorrect calculations for the ratios of ACE lease price to ex-vessel price. Table 27 has been corrected so that both ex-vessel and ACE lease prices are presented in dollars per live pound. In addition, in the first edition of the report, Table 43 reported mean per day values on groundfish trips, and Table 44 reported mean per day values on non-groundfish trips. Both of these tables have been corrected to present median (instead of mean) values per day. This correction was made to address the highly skewed distribution of per day values. The median value is a more appropriate summary statistic to represent the earnings of the groundfish fleet per day on both groundfish and non-groundfish trips.
