SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The workshop will include a discussion of 
2011 recordkeeping and reporting requirements for Alaska groundfish 
fisheries and Individual Fishing Quota fisheries, and instructions for 
completing and submitting required reports and logbooks using 
seaLandings.
    NMFS will provide a demonstration of the new version of seaLandings 
for at-sea catcher/processors and motherships, and training on how to 
submit daily production reports, and landing reports with and without

Islands Area require American Fisheries Act catcher/processors and any 
catcher/processor harvesting Community Development Quota pollock to use 
a NMFS approved electronic logbook in lieu of using the NMFS catcher/
processor trawl gear Daily Fishing Logbook. At this workshop, NMFS will 
provide a demonstration of the trawl catcher/processor electronic 
logbook in seaLandings.
