From 2001-2013, in coordination with Pacific Islands Regional Office's (PIRO) Tuna Treaty Monitoring Program, the Size Frequency Sampling Program at the cannery collected length-frequency data from American Samoa-based longliners, in addition to the purse seiners offloading at the cannery (which was the primary target of this PIRO program). Only the length-frequency data for the top 5-10 longline species were stored by WPacFIN for use in estimating weight of landings from longliners (only species and number kept/released are collected in longline logbooks). Only the data collected by PIRO staff on South Pacific Regional Longline Port Sampling Form were entered by DMWR staff into a database provided by WPacFIN. The bulk of this purse seine sampling program's data went to the Southwest Fisheries Science Center.
