The ADF&G, Division of Commercial Fisheries,
Arctic-Yukon-Kuskokwim (AYK) Region has created a database management system (DBMS) for public use, the AYKDBMS.
The goal of this system is to provide managers, researchers, and the public involved in fisheries in the AYK Region with a system to enter and process new data, as well as
to retrieve historical data.
The AYKDBMS provides access to AYK project descriptions, biological measurements of age, sex, and length,
escapement data, and Norton Sound test fisheries data through this internet site.
The website also includes a demonstration of extraction and reporting of subsistence and commercial harvest data for
Norton Sound only.
The purpose of this page is to provide guidance and background information on our
In this relational database we have described many of the projects in AYK that collect
information on fisheries. You are welcome to learn about our projects and download
We have attempted to design an easy to use system. Please take time to understand
how we define management areas, data types, project types,
and method types. This will greatly increase your ease of entry and enhance
your understanding of fisheries, stock assessment, and research in the AYK
Data can be viewed or retrieved from this web site in several ways. We recommend
that you view our definitions in order to understand our data organization and most
efficiently find data your are interested in.
We hope through continued use of this site you will develop an understanding
of ongoing and historical projects. We will continue to add data and projects in
future years and correct errors in data that are brought to our attention.
