FOOTNOTES: (Please see report description for complete information!)

(1) Please read the Report Description for a detailed explanation of the vessels represented in this report and those excluded due to a licensing exemption.

(2) This report is based on information provided on vessel license application forms. The information may contain omissions or errors. If information is omitted (unknown) the sum of the vessels in the category will be less than the total number of vessels. For example, the sum of the vessels by hull type will be less than the total number of vessels in the area if this information not been provided on all applications.

(3) Vessels can be used for more than one activity and can use multiple gear types. As a result, in these categories a vessel may be counted multiple times. Some vessels may not be counted at all if the activity or gear information was not provided on the vessel license application.

(4) The Number of Vessels Represented is the number of vessels used to calculate the average, median, and skewness. Since the vessel application may contain omissions, not all vessels can be used when developing this information. A low percentage of the total vessels indicates that the figure comes from a very small group and may not be representative of the area's fleet.
